The Opposite of Gratitude

Posted: Updated:

The Opposite of Gratitude

is self-absorption.

Which comes in many forms:

guilt
entitlement
manipulating others
never being able to say you're sorry
inability to let go of anger
rumination
fears
anxiety.

"About me" removes the ability to be grateful.

Gratitude requires an open heart
A clearing of the mind

Space.

Space which Gratitude can fill.

Gratitude requires huge spaciousness.
