Willful Desires
When we habitually try to manipulate others to our own willful desires,
they revolt, and resist us heavily. Then we develop hurt feelings, a sense
of persecution, and a desire to retaliate. As we redouble our efforts at
control, and continue to fail, our suffering becomes acute and constant.
We have not once sought to be one in a family, to be a friend among
friends, to be a worker among workers, to be a useful member of society.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Four) p. 53

Thought to Ponder . . .
