Hate Or Resentment?

Complete disclosure: the past five weeks of my life have been chaotic and filled with lot's of emotional pain. I lost touch with myself and what made me happy and focused too much on what didn't.

On the surface I was angry and wanted to be somewhat vocally violent at people that were triggering me. It wasn't hatred or personal and I definitely wasn't going to act on my very irrational unplanned acts of romanticised violence but these feelings just didn't seem to be subsiding and it was affecting my relationships, well being and mental health. I don't think I have ever been so actively angry in my daily life ever and can now gladly say the storm has passed. 

Don't forget to pin on Pinterest!

Just like my passion of solving the Broadchurch mysteries I needed to get to the root of these feelings because I didn't want to live this way for another day.

Key word: RESENT

The weight that lifted when this word came to me mid diary scribble was immense, like I had been carrying around all my anger in the form of bricks in weak plastic shopping bags and they got heavier by the minute and the bags were breaking and all I could really do was collapse.

Resent in disguise acts like a firm talon grip on your shoulder that gradually becomes unyielding and eventually you adjust to the sensation and forget it's even there.
When this word jumped off the page at me it was as if the restraint was no longer there holding me captive, manipulating my power and reactions. Looking at it now it reeked of havoc and fueled me with a dangerous poison that I was getting far too used to tasting.

Resent is the act of rejecting acceptance of part of yourself.
I was not accepting of parts of myself and in return was resenting myself deeply. This is not a pretty thing to admit but I do not care anymore because part of my resent was actually the expectations of upholding a pretty face especially when I know majority of the time it is not.

It is resistance, a stagnant energy that will not allow you to move forwards or backwards. Like everything, it comes back to you and the accumulation of choices that you made that lead you to where you are.
To release yourself from this dormant state of anger you need to accept that you got yourself here and that it is okay because now you are going to break the cycle. Stopping or continuing the pattern takes energy either way so the choice is yours. 

Resentment is not to be mistaken with hatred but it does sit agreeably with grudges, envy and in some cases jealousy. It's time to get on your hand and knees and pull out those weeds from the roots, it's ugly and taxing but happiness and content stems within and this you deserve.

What you feed will grow.

Big love, Delilah

The Start Of The Rest Of My Life

Welcome to my first ever post on my new blog The Resplendent Lioness!I have been working on many aspects of this blog for over the past week but to finally sit down and write my first is a very lovely feeling.
Only just recently have I recognised that as long as I can write I am deeply satisfied. I still crave intensely many MANY wonders, writing just gives my experience a sense of purpose that other loves just don't. The best way I can describe it is as if  I am the whole universe, writing is the sun, and my many other joys are planets and stars. All are important and make up the whole universe, this is key. Stars and new planets can be discovered but there is only one sun.  The complete source of warmth, bringing light to every part of me.
My desires to venture into the blogging world have only come about recently and suddenly but I believe in divine timing and this could not have entered my life at a more excellent time. I asked for a summer romance and I got handed a blog. My oh…

18 Life Changing Lessons I Learnt In 2018

Here we are again, the end of a book and this time it so happens to be the novel that was 2018. A lot occurred in the past 12 chapters and 365 pages and for all I find peace with and am grateful.
Moments have been filled with pleasure, some with agony, some with sadness, elation, shock, glee, gloom, mild insanity, only to name a few otherwise we'll be here for the whole of 2019 if I try to list all the adjectives I've felt recently. I actually really enjoy watching the pendulum swing every which way asking you ever so politely with a kick up the butt to keep and never stop progressing. So to sum it up my year was filled with a lot of butt kicking.
I used to HATE the thought of new years eve and even birthdays so much that I'd get emotionally and physically distressed about them. It meant that the clock kept ticking and chapters kept ending, a concept my little eleven year old self didn't want to have to accept. Ever. It's only been this year that I've embraced th…

The 10 Albums That Transcended In 2018

Albums and EPs that I listened to non-stop in 2018 and you should listen to too!My favourite 10 releases in 2018 that features artists you will immediately fall in love with.

I spend a decent amount of my time admiring the artistic expression of music. It is something that I hold very close and very, very dear to my heart. Along with writing, music brings the most indescribable and monumental feelings of pure elation and raw electricity.
My favourite genre of music is the kind that leaves me feeling like I just saw through space and time in the matter of minutes and now I know every secret to the universe... so basically I'll go for anything that makes me feel like I'm high.

2018 was a year of some spectacular breakthroughs in music from new artists entering the scene or familiar faces re-inventing what they have to offer. Now, more then ever you're bound to find someone somewhere on the globe making something to cater to your very specific likes. I can't guarantee you…
