sorry I don't get this one - besides this doesn't apply to home brewers, does it??

Apo, I think the line goes "Resentment is letting someone live rent free inside your head". Most of the time the people we expend so much energy and angst and anger over aren't even aware of our issues with them. In a real sense because we respond so quickly and passionately to their slightest actions, we are slaves to them. I knew this one was a little cryptic.

Ouch. Now that you explain this one, I have to say that it kinda hurts.

Thanks for the pain. It'll do me some good :)

Yes, those "nurse and rehearse" tendencies can really occupy a lot of our mental space.

S-P, when those images and feelings come (and they often do)I try my best to take it as a prompt to pray for the person (which I often fail to do).
