AA Thought for the Day
March 23, 2019
Grudges and Revenge
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.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Four) p. 47
