We are back with more on recovery resentment and relapse. Unfortunately, resentment can be an emotion felt by those working towards recovery. Though many overcome those feelings, others do not. The negativity consumes them to the point that relapse is a real possibility. Here, you'll find additional information that can help you better understand the most common reasons for resentment. If you missed our previous blogs, check back here and here for more.
Resentment can come from many different parts of addiction or recovery. They include:
When things don’t go the way they are expected to, emotions run high. Those suffering from addiction, or those who are in recovery, tend to have trouble coping with their emotions.
When suffering from addiction, many people feel that they have been dealt a bad hand in life. This is especially true for individuals who realize that no one else in their family or circle of friends have dealt with addiction. They may resent the fact that they struggle when no one else does.
Individuals who experienced an intervention may feel resentment towards their family even after they see how much better their life is in recovery. Many people don't like to feel powerless. In an intervention, drug abusers feel like they've lost all control and are having to do what others tell them to. This can lead to resentment that carries on through recovery.
