Another Excuse
We also clutch at another wonderful excuse for avoiding an inventory.
Our present anxieties and troubles, we cry, are caused by the behavior
of other people—people who really need a moral inventory. We firmly
believe that if only they'd treat us better, we'd be all right. Therefore we
think our indignation is justified and reasonable—that our resentments
are the "right kind." We aren't the guilty ones. They are!

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Four) pp. 45 - 46

Thought to Ponder
Delay is the deadliest form of denial.

AA-related 'Alconym'
D E N I A L  =  Don't Even Notice It's A Lie.
