Why I created these bitterness quotes

If you’re new to my site, hi there! I’m both a bestselling author and award winning designer.

I personally created these bitterness quote image posters. Why? Because I’ve had my share of struggles with narcissists, liars, and challenging toxic people of all kinds.

I was even involved with a Prince Harming.

Thankfully I did the inner work needed to let go of my pain, shame and anger. I’m now on the other side – happily partnered and free from resentment.

My mission: I want to help as many people as I can to let go of the pain from their past – and enjoy life more.

If you feel bitter and resentful due to toxic people…

Do you have challenging people in your life – who create stress, drama, upheaval – and make you feel bitter?
