AA Thought for the Day
August 19, 2021
It is a spiritual axiom that every time we are disturbed, no matter what the cause,
there is something wrong with us. If somebody hurts us and we are sore, we are in
the wrong also. But are there no exceptions to this rule? What about "justifiable"
anger? If somebody cheats us, aren't we entitled to be mad? Can't we be properly
angry with self-righteous folk? For us of A.A. these are dangerous exceptions. We
have found that justified anger ought to be left to those better qualified to handle it.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Ten) p. 90
Thought to Ponder
Anger is the wind that blows out the light of reason.
A A = Avoid Anger.
