Final update on “Steve….”

My boy is going to be fine; he was upbeat, talkative and thanked me for finding me when I did….This whole thing was sparked from a resentment against his Dad for, well lets just say, shooting WAY over par in fatherhood. Resentments are brutal. The moment you start to resent a person, you become his slave. He controls your dreams, absorbs your digestion, robs you of your peace of mind and goodwill, and takes away the pleasure of your work. He ruins your religion and nullifies your prayers. You cannot take a vacation without his going along. He destroys your freedom of mind and hounds you wherever you go. There is no way to escape the person you resent. He is with you when you are awake. He invades your privacy when you sleep. He is close beside you when you drive your car and when you are on the job. You can never have efficiency or happiness. He influences even the tone of your voice. He requires you to take medicine for indigestion, headaches, and loss of energy. He even steals you last moment of consciousness before you go to sleep. So—if you want to be a slave—harbor your resentments! If not, Grab yourself a sponsor (You’ll find one at any AA meeting across the Globe) and he/she will guide you into the 12-steps.

  1. Chris – I hope this is not the “final” update on Steve. His story and your story are very compelling. Please keep us informed of his progress because he has been in my thoughts and prayers these last few days. God bless!

  2. Woah Chris… you are so right. What a great post–to the point, I’ll remember it when I find my resentments on vacation with me! Congrats on all your accomplishments.
