“We learn in the program that we cannot punish anyone without punishing ourselves. The release of my tensions, even justified, in a punishing way leaves behind the dregs of bitterness and pain. Today I will remember to deal with anger appropriately.” – A day at a time 2/18
Impatience, anger, and aggressively talking to people are character defects of mine. In sobriety, even the most subtle of bad behavior greatly affects me. This quote is a great reminder to show love and tolerance to myself and others. I cannot afford to have anger damage myself or others. ILML!
