This is happening now.

Right now, at this very moment, there’s someone out there thinking about you.

I hate to break it to you, my friend, but this certain someone is thinking about you in a not-so-positive kind of way.

They resent you. It could have been something you did to them. Or maybe it was something you said. Or maybe something they only heard you did or said. Who knows?

The thing about these resentful thoughts and feelings is that they’re the exact same thoughts and feelings this poor person had the day before … and the day before … and the day before …

Gosh knows how long this has been going on. It’s like they’re carrying around your shadow. It permeates their life inside and out, elevating their stress hormones, depressing their immune system, raising their blood pressure, infecting their personality.

They just can’t let it go. Even if the only person they’re really hurting is themselves.

And here you are. You probably have no idea who this person is. But I assure you, there’s at least one.

Then again, maybe you know exactly who it is. His or her name hasn’t crossed your mind for some time. In fact, you never really think about this person anymore.

But they’re thinking about you.

After all of this time and opportunities for healing, they still haven’t let it go. And to some extent it’s running their life.

On today’s episode of the show, our main man Les Brown is back to encourage us to let go of our grudges and resentments … in a way that only Les Brown can do it. 🙂
