~ Allowing others to make decisions for them.

~ Feeling used and unappreciated.

~ Frustrating to others because they show no initiative or assertion.

~ Saying yes when they want to say no.

~ Being in situations they don't want to be in.

~ Blaming others for their unhappiness.

~ Constantly seeking other's approval.

~ Feeling like every situation is the same.
The end result of accepting and using this "anger" method is ultimate frustration and stress leading to depression. When this overwhelms the individual they are most likely to turn to alcohol or drugs to shut the mind off and eliminate the negative feelings that eat away at them. Behaving passively over years has the ability to produce and promote feelings of learned helplessness. This is often times the catalyst for depression.

Through mental repetitions and cognitive scripting we become who we are based on what we think about most. If you think that you are a good person then you will believe you are a good person. If you think you deserve the best that life has to offer, then you will work towards getting the best and being grateful that it is a part of your life. Conversely, if you think thoughts about being and feeling worthless, and that you don't deserve better--life has dealt you a terrible hand, then this will become your reality and you will act and become accordingly. When you add all of this stuff together (What I have discussed in this chapter so far) the seeds of BITTERNESS have been sown and through repetition, the fertilizer called RESISTANCE TO CHANGE makes sure it flourishes and stays alive. The end result is BITTER RESISTANCE!
