Battling Resentment

I work hard. Bart works hard. We work hard. Long hours, crazy schedules, and always attempting to spend enough time with the kids. And we pay the bills. And we watch people who don't do anything.

Being the recipient of the consequences of others actions, working while they waste hours, listening to them bemoan their predicament.... not being resentful is difficult.

But I've found that looking at the big picture helps me. Looking towards the future with hope -- that this is a stage they are going through, that it will pass some day -- that is what gets me through.

Well, at least most of the time.
