- Don't curse it (the person who hurt your feelings)
- Don't rehearse it (retell the story of how you have been wronged umpteen times)
- Don't nurse it (feel sorry for yourself about how you were treated unfairly)
A while back, I was handed a big disappointment. Big. I was much more upset about it than I let on to anyone (must maintain laissez-faire attitude at all costs). I had to revisit my notes from that message because I was having trouble letting go of it and having a good attitude even though my head knew the decision was a blessing in disguise. It took quite a few prayerful commutes to get to where I am right now. The place where I know the right decision was made. Because really, praying for God's will just as long as it is the same as yours isn't how it works.
