Resentment
by A. Orange



It is difficult to count how many times well-indoctrinated Steppers have accused me of "having a resentment" (and hence of being "spiritually inferior" and "axiomatically wrong" and "insane"), but here's a list:

  1. ...lot of it makes sense but other part say to me that the writer may hold resentment and may not even be christian...

  2. I hate to say it, but I think you have a RESENTMENT.

  3. This is not a rigorous criticism of AA, this is a blatant rant of a small intellect and a big resentment.

  4. There is no spiritual condition when resentment fills a heart, let alone the capacity to MAINTAIN one.

  14. When Jesus Christ preached to people about morality, I don't recall him ever mentioning resentments.

  15. However, I refuse to be a doormat and I like my resentment, it reminds me of the fact that I have a back bone!

  16. However, my personal experience is that most people who are true alcoholics, who stop drinking on their own will, are not in recovery. They are still bound by fears and resentments, and are not living a serene life.

  17. Lois Wilson was "axiomatically spiritually wrong", as Bill Wilson put it, because she had a resentment...

  19. A clinical study of A.A.: A.A. does not reduce anger. Negative Affect, Relapse, and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA): Does AA Work by Reducing Anger? says that A.A. will not relieve you of "having a resentment".

Oh well, have a good day anyway.
