TWELVE STEPPING WITH SUPPORT FROM SCRIPTURE
JOB 5 v 2 "For anger slays the foolish man, And jealousy kills the simple.
Resentment - We often experience resentment toward other people when we find it hard to forgive them and hold onto unspoken pain. ... Resentment lives inside us, feeding on our negative feelings and emotions. ... What did come was resentment toward the people who’d hurt me—that and anger.
Jealously - in a way that shows an envious resentment of someone or their achievements, possessions, or perceived advantages.
Resentment and jealously , will keep you trapped in your self medicating ways . They will also take every ounce of joy out of life ! Resentment leads to anger and anger undealt with makes us bitter and that bitterness makes us jealous of others who have found sobriety . In time resentment ,bitterness anger and jealously will take control of you and you will lose yourself in guilt and shame because you will become blinded to the poison eating you up inside .If not dealt with ,you will lose everything and everyone and studies show that these defects will take you to you to an early grave.
