AA Thought for the Day
May 31, 2018
But in A.A. we slowly learned that something had to be done about our vengeful resentments,
self-pity, and unwarranted pride. We had to see that every time we played the big shot, we
turned people against us. We had to see that when we harbored grudges and planned revenge
for such defeats, we were really beating ourselves with the club of anger we had intended to use
on others. We learned that if we were seriously disturbed, our first need was to quiet that
disturbance, regardless of who or what we thought caused it.
