  • We have been driven to maudlin sympathy, to bitter resentment.

  • Because of resentment and drinking, he had not paid alimony to his first wife.

  • Continue to watch for selfishness, dishonesty, resentment, and fear.

  • A great wave of outraged resentment engulfed the meeting, sweeping every member to a single resolve: "Out he goes!"

  • It brings misunderstanding, fierce resentment, financial insecurity, disgusted friends and employers, warped lives of blameless children, sad wives and parents -- anyone can increase the list.

  • Resentment grows.

  • We put them on paper, even though we had no resentment in connection with them.

  • Never forget that resentment is a deadly hazard to an alcoholic.

  • But with the alcoholic, whose hope is the maintenance and growth of a spiritual experience, this business of resentment is infinitely grave.

  • Resentment is the "number one" offender.

  • The greatest enemies of us alcoholics are resentment, jealousy, envy, frustration, and fear.

  • It is plain that a life which includes deep resentment leads only to futility and unhappiness.

  • You should warn against arousing resentment or jealousy.

  • The elder statesman is the one who sees the wisdom of the group's decision, who holds no resentment over his reduced status, whose judgment, fortified by considerable experience, is sound, and who is willing to sit quietly on the sidelines patiently awaiting developments.

About the Podcast

In This Moment with Toby C
In This Moment w/ Toby C. is a "concept" show.
The "concept" is for the suffering listener to imagine themselves getting better....
How?... By imagining themselves paying attention to another suffering soul - and firing up the other person's imagination - that they too, will get better. That "this too shall pass." This is a concept show that enables the listener / sufferer to get better through the imagination. The imagination is a first cousin of something called faith. This faith / imagination is a portal through which the sufferer, through the power of the open mind, can begin a journey to move away from destructive self-consciousness and closer toward the healing power of God-consciousness. The final concept of this show is that the listener / sufferer will change their "message" - from the insanity of the head to the serenity of the heart.. How? .... Through sponsorship.... listen... every show has a subliminal message from God... Keep an open mind and let Him in! God Bless and happy healing!!
