Examples of seethe in a Sentence

  1. Steven Phillipson:

    Traditional therapy, like analysis, is not only ineffective but highly detrimental, to look into the nature of the thoughts as if there’s some underlying issue going on— or an analyst saying, ‘Oh, if you have thoughts about harming your child, we need to look deeper into your underlining anger issues’— that’s really not what’s going on. They’re still trying to seethe thoughts as the problem, which they’re not.

  2. Mickey Mehta:
