Doing the resentment journal the other day showed me that I let most things go for the sake of peace. Though I'm not a doormat, I sort of live by the adage, would I rather be right or happy? I found out that knowing I'm right, even if the other person doesn't accept it, is enough! I also discovered that I'm not the type of person who gets drawn into arguments. I did discover a couple of my triggers--I don't like any form criticism nor my intelligence questioned! One thing I thought was interesting doing the exercise was listing hurts I caused to other people. That was hard, because I don't try to do anything to hurt another person. But, I recognized when I was listing the slights I felt against me, that that person's intent wasn't to delibrately try to hurt me--it was an off the cuff remark that they probably never gave a second thought and I brooded on. So then I thought, "Wow--what do I maybe say or do that I don't realize unintentionally hurts someone else? That was an eye-opener! It really causes you to analyze your actions and weigh your words carefully.
