I came upon this article in the Los Angeles Times (via Slashdot) describing how Psychiatrists are proposing declaring deep bitterness a mental illness.
Bitterness as mental illness? - Los Angeles Times
This is fascinating. We all know someone who has become deeply bitter about a wrong that was done to them and I am often puzzled at the vehemence of this belief. Particularly when as you get to know the circumstances you realize that the person made choices that played a role in where they ended up too. The bad thing that happened to them was something that they were partially complicit in.
So part of the bitterness is often self-directed anger (how did I get myself into this?) and part of it is from a sense of entitlement (the world/this person/this institution owes me, dammit!)
Well - it looks like a line of drugs and some therapy is going to fix all of that - which really bums me out. Bitter people have ruined my life and I want them to pay for it!
