#bittersweet, #healing, selfcare, Our world as we know keeps changing from what is the norm to a new norm daily. We have so many questions but fewer answers. So, to keep up with the changes in our world and our lives, the Princess Pat Akpabio Show will be shading light and sharing with you insights and counsel on those things you may have questions about and need real answers to daily.
What is bitterness? In my own words, bitterness is a feeling that a person wouldn't let go of painful past occurrences in his or her life. Always wanting to be right while others are wrong and holding on to the past as if it was a gold medal. We have so many people living with the bitterness of heart, spirit, and soul. When a person is bitter, he is she is always emphasizing self-righteousness and perfectionism.
How to know someone is bitter
1. Undue control
Anything that carries self, the Holy Spirit can’t manifest. Beware of the person around you who always wants to be acknowledged before you make a decision or get anything is done. For instance, before you have friends, before you hang out with your friends, before your husband or your wife goes out. This person is not a good person and that person said this or said that about you, beware of ungodly gossips, etc. This person just wants to be seen to be consulted before you live your life, when you as a person are a grown-up adult paying your own bills and doing your own things in life. Beware, that is someone trying to have undue control over your life which is a symptom of Bitterness. Only God is meant to have control over our lives.
2. Never appreciative
Beware of someone that no matter what you do and have done for them, they still feel they have done more for you and will never acknowledge that you have done anything good for them. Matter of fact you owe him or her more. that is someone who will never be satisfied in this life, that is someone who is not happy with themselves and doesn’t want to see you happy and so they must always bring your drama. This is a symptom of Bitterness
3. Quick to criticize
Beware of anyone who will always criticize what you do, what you say and who you associate with at all times negatively and who also listens to gossips and will try to pollute everyone’ mind in your environment about you, that is someone who is anti-social and doesn’t want to see you socialize and ease of stress and wants you to live in misery because they can not socialize like you, this is a symptom of Bitterness
4. Requires recognization
Beware of anyone who when they don’t get their way they walk out of the party because they feel that they were not acknowledged as A or as B, that is someone who is suffering from low self-esteem and has insecurity of who they are and that recognition makes them feel important. I mean they become extremist by leaving the party, this is a symptom of Bitterness
5. Fault finding
Beware of anyone who complains a lot, who finds faults a lot. Beware of anyone who is always right and others wrong and who will do you wrong and when wrong is being done to them, he or she will cry foul play and goes on angry self-pity mode of how people don’t like them no matter what good they have done, how people put them down, etc forgetting that they themselves are the architect of their own problems by their actions. Beware of people who don’t admit that they are wrong too but are always being the ones wronged. Beware of people who use emotions too much in an attempt to get what they want out of anyone, that is manipulation and manipulation is the spirit of witchcraft not of God, this is a symptom of Bitterness
