Day 25: 365 Days of Motivation for Widows

“Hanging on to resentment is letting someone you despise live rent-free in your head.”
–Ann Landers

Whether you lost your spouse through natural causes or an accident, most widows carry some resentment and anger. It is part of the process–and it’s absolutely understandable.  There does come a time when we need to move through the steps of grief before you  heal. If you are struggling with anger or resentment, seek help to move forward. Talk to friends, talk to a counselor, or talk to God–whatever helps you through. Because when  you live with that resentment, you are letting your enemy have the power. Or, as this quote says, ‘live rent-free’. Your enemy has taken enough of you–take back your power.

Being a teen mother and a widow in my mid-twenties has given me plenty of storms to weather. Writing has always been my solace, it's also a passion and a talent. Through my writing I hope to help others weather their storms and create my own path to my dreams.
