Remember that holding on to anger/resentment/bitterness etc does not hurt the other person, only you. Also, it does not change the situation. Only you control what you think about, and you become what you think about. If you become an angry, bitter person this will only hurt you. Therefore, change your thoughts to more positive ones. Wish peace and love for those you resent. Very difficult to do at first, but over time, this process will actually help you to feel more peaceful.
Don't do things for others if you (secretly) want something in return. Let go of/lower your expectations of people.
Think of things that you are grateful for. Understanding and forgiveness (towards yourself and others) are the keys for all of the above emotional issues. Learn as much as you can about this subject, and put it into practice. Forgiveness is not condoning wrong doing, instead it releases you from the 'prison of bitterness.
