Happiness Thought for the Day: September 4, 2021

“Turns out, resentment is corrosive, and I hate it.” Tony Stark / Iron Man

When Tony Stark spoke those words to Captain America the two had been cursing for several years each one placing blame on the other for their collective failure to stop Thanos from destroying half of all life in the universe. 

At long last Tony took the first step towards reconciliation. This moment teaches us the power of forgiveness. Anger and resentment ultimately harms nobody except the person who harbors those feelings, making them a corrosive force as Tony says. 

Holding on to such feelings keeps us living in the past which can lead to depression and it prevents us from moving forward and enjoying a happier present and future. 

I Life is too short to live in resentment. It prohibits us from enjoying happiness with those who could and should be our friends and family. Explore what resentment you may be bearing and figure out a way to forgive. You owe it to yourself.
