Dealing with Resentment

I've been thinking about resentment lately, and realized that I have a fairly good running tally of everything I resent about most people I know. I don't let it go...I remember it as evidence of behavior patterns. It doesn't make me happy. I have recently started looking toward my faith as a way to deal with this resentment and nudge me towards forgiveness.

How does your your faith help you deal with your own resentments? Is the model of a specific deity helpful to you? An aspect of the life philosophy of your faith? The ever present other?
