Reflection For The Day

Self-pity is one of the most miserable and consuming defects I know.  Because of its interminable demands for attention and sympathy. my self-pity cuts off my communication with others, especially communication with my Higher Power.  When I look at it that way, I realize that self-pity limits my spiritual progress.  It’s also a very real form of martyrdom, which is a luxury I simply can’t afford.  The remedy, I’ve been taught, is to have a hard look at myself and a still harder one at The Program’s Twelve Steps to recovery.  Do I ask my Higher Power to relieve me of the bondage of self-pity?

Today I Pray

May I know from observation that self-pitiers get almost no pity from anyone else.  Nobody — not even God — can fill their outsized demands for sympathy.  May I recognize my own unsavory feeling of self-pity when it creeps in to rob me of my serenity.  May God keep me wary of it’s sneakiness.

Today I Will Remember

My captor is my self.
