I'm not sure why, but I have been the trigger person for most of my career. The gunslinger brought in to say, No. Human Resource professionals are frequently referred to as The Fashion Police (that skirt is too short), The Personal Hygiene Moderator (deodorant is a necessity), Policy Patrol (insubordination IS grounds for termination) and, worst of all, the b-word. So why can't everyone else draw a line in the sand?
Resentment. Letting go the poison from within. Looking back I wonder why I have devoted so much time and contemplation to resentment. I’ve never really worried about “letting it go”. I hold onto it for years, decades, dragging it around like a childhood stuffed bear. I can’t imagine how much energy I would have if I could be refunded all the time I spend on resentment. Carrie Fisher said it best “Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”
