AA Thought for the Day
April 5, 2021
Or, the person concerned not being present, we thought we were
helping others to understand him, when in actuality our true motive
was to feel superior by pulling him down. We sometimes hurt those
we love because they need to be "taught a lesson", when we really
want to punish. We were depressed and complained we felt bad,
when in fact we were mainly asking for sympathy and attention.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Ten) p. 94
Thought to Ponder
Complaining is not an action step.
W I S D O M = When Into Self, Discover Our Motives.
