Experts suggest ways to correct habits that keep us from resting well
Verified by Psychology Today
I really appreciate your honesty and real-life example of what it means to struggle with resentment and to feel trapped by circumstances. Life is not fair and learning to accept this is an important life lesson. We block our own happiness when we focus too much on what others have. Facing the pain and actively mourning what you couldn't have is a first step to letting go. The next step is to find other sources of meaning and invest your energy fully in the life you have. Thanks for writing in.
