Fear is about the future, that you will not get your way. Anger is about the present, not getting your way now. Resentment is about the past, not getting your way in the past. The future, we cannot control, as the past we cannot change, where the present is where we really live. To fear one’s future and to resent one’s past affects one’s present. Fear is actually selfishness, a person’s NEED to get their WANTS, and selfishness is the root of addiction. Selfishness can cause cravings, causing relapse to escape the pain that a person has created in their lives.
