“A therapist once said to me, “If you face the choice between feeling guilt and resentment, choose the guilt every time.”   It is wisdom I have passed on to many others since.  If a refusal saddles you with guilt, while consent leaves resentment in its wake, opt for the guilt.

Resentment is soul suicide.
