Resentment and My Robot Vaccum

Saint Augustine is reported to have said that “resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”

One of my many personal flaws is that I don’t get over things easily. And unfortunately, I am no Saint.

You know how according to posts on LinkedIn, everyone leaving their job thinks that their former colleagues are wonderful?  (Of course, if that was really true, perhaps they would not be leaving.)

I have to say that I truly like and respect just about all of my former partners. Just about. Except for one or two. In fact, I must admit that I am so immature that I named my robot vacuum after one of them. Because it sucks.  And it has a dirt bag. And I can kick it when it goes by.

I am hoping to someday become a better person. But I am already 67 years old. I better start soon or it will be too late.
