AA Thought for the Day
May 21, 2020
Defects and Humility
All of us saw, for example, that we lacked honesty and tolerance,
that we were beset at times by attacks of self-pity or delusions of
personal grandeur. But while this was a humiliating experience, it
didn't necessarily mean that we had yet acquired much actual
humility. Though now recognized, our defects were still there.
Something had to be done about them.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Five) p. 58
