Keep Resentment from Creeping Into Your Business.
Jenn Hudder | Jul 6, 2022
Prepare yourself; I'm getting vulnerable with you today and exploring one of the yuckiest feelings that I've ever experienced as an entrepreneur - Resentment.
A quick Google search yielded the following definition:
Resentment is a complex, multilayered emotion that has been described as a mixture of disappointment, disgust, anger, and fear at having been treated unfairly.
Ugh. I can feel every word of that sentence in my bones. And, although we often relate the feeling of resentment to people or relationships in our life, the place where I experienced it the most was in my business.
Even worse, I didn't know it.
Over time (I owned that business for over 13 years), the business had gone from being a space that filled me up both creatively and professionally to being the place that I dreaded going to every week.
How was it possible that I could be experiencing resentment toward the very thing that I created?!
