Sometimes, you may find it difficult to serve others. It’s an understandable and common challenge, especially if your willingness to serve is blocked by built-up resentment. Perhaps you have been taken advantage of in the past, or maybe when you served others before, your efforts went unnoticed, unappreciated, or were never reciprocated. It makes sense then, that you would find yourself reluctant to serve now. If this is your current experience, there is something you can do to help chip away at any residual resentment.
Take out a sheet of paper and make a list of everyone you resent. Review your list and choose the person for whom your resentment “burns” the most. Ask yourself the following questions. When you have time, return to the list and complete the questions for each person you listed.
Declare the situation resolved by stating your intention and willingness to forgive the person. If you want to take it a step further, once you have completed the questions for each person, burn the entire list as a symbolic demonstration that you have released the past.
