The first step to escape resentment is for me to recognize my resentment. My bipolar mind makes the resentment seem so real and so persistent that I can't always see it for myself. Therefore, since I at least know something's wrong about the way I feel, I seek counsel from someone who is able to recognize and explain my resentment.
My family and friends are too close, too involved, and perhaps too affected with my sickness to help me see my problem; so, with an open mind (ESSENTIAL) and willingness to listen and accept (ESSENTIAL) what I hear about myself, I go to a trained counselor or to a therapist.
Living in the present is part of the solution for me. When my bipolar mind does not allow me (resentment) to live in the present, I know I am back "in the problem" rather than "in the solution."
