AA Thought for the Day

Pride and Guilt
In pride I could say, "Look at me, I am wonderful." In guilt I would moan,
"I'm awful." Therefore guilt is really the reverse side of the coin of pride.
Guilt aims at self-destruction and Pride aims at the destruction of others.
This is why I see humility for today as that safe and secure stance
midway between these violent emotional extremes. 

- AA Grapevine, June 1961 (Humility for Today, Bill W)

Thought to Ponder
The difference between pride and humility:
Pride is who is right. Humility is what is right.

AA-related 'Alconym'
P R I D E  =  Personal Recovery Involves Deflating Ego.

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
