Feeling inadequate, fuming and resenting the luminaries in my profession made for an uncomfortable morning.  Journaling and self-inquiry, uncovered the gift.  The resentment tells me more about what is going on with me, then with the person I am judging.  And that’s the good news.


"If I have a resentment, it usually means I haven’t set a boundary, I haven’t asked for something I want or need, OR that I am a bit petty and jealous.”  – Mark J. Silverman


Today on Mastering Midlife:


  • Resentment? I need to do some work
  • Boundaries and asking for what I want are the first step. The gold is in the petty and jealous
  • Judge Your Neighbor Worksheet by Byron Katie
  • The question to ask myself when it’s the petty and jealous
