How do I know if I am bitter? A state of bitterness is much like a very used unwashed article of clothing. It attacks the senses of all present. Even at a distance, bitterness effects many. Bitterness is not a current situation. Bitterness can manifest itself in the context of recent events, but the roots were laid early in life. I believe the process of bitterness is established through judgments established between the years 0 through 5. Early judgments establish themselves in the heart laying the foundational growth for bitterness. If left unresolved, the effects show up in negative life cycles. Life cycles that are counterproductive to our well-being. Often these recurring Life cycles or patterns of dysfunction can leave one in a state of discord, bewilderment, confusion, directionless, and habitual judging and blaming others for all that offends the one with roots of bitterness
