If Blaming Others Is Bad For Your Health, Obama’s In Big Trouble

Via CNN

Feeling persistently resentful toward other people –the boss who fired you, the spouse who cheated on you –can indeed affect your physical health, according to a new book, “Embitterment: Societal, psychological, and clinical perspectives.”

In fact, the negative power of feeling bitter is so strong that the authors call for the creation of a new diagnosis called PTED, or post-traumatic embitterment disorder, to describe people who can’t forgive others’ transgressions against them.

The story points out that this really isn’t some crackpot BS, but actually has negative physiological and psychological effects on a person.

They also offer 5 ways to help, though, conspicuously absent are “perhaps I had something to do with what happened” and “grow up and just fuckin’ move on, crybaby. You wanted this job.”

    Sounds faintly familiar to Bush Derangement Syndrome, or the Post-Bush Continuous Derangement Syndrome, etc.

    Wow, this completely explains why liberals are so F’d up mentally. Constantly bitter and blaming others for their mistakes.

    If they’d just learn to let go, let people learn to rely on themselves, let people rise and fall on their own merits… they’d be much happier and free’er people.

  2. Well, remember, these are people who get pissed off because they’re happy to be at the beach on such a nice day which makes them mad, and they’re happy their mad….
