Reflection For The Day

As a recovering alcoholic, I have to remind myself that no0 amount of social acceptance of resentments will take the poison out of them.  In a way, the problem of resentments is very much like the drinking problem.  Alcohol is never safe for me;  no matter who is offering it.  I’ve attended cocktail receptions for worthy causes, often in a convivial atmosphere that makes drinking seem almost harmless.  Just as I politely but adamanity decline alcohol under any conditions, will I also refuse to accept resentments — no matter who is serving them?

Today I Pray

When anger, hurt, fear or guilt — to be socially acceptable — put on their polite, pary manners, dress up as resentment and come in the side door, may I not hobnob with them.  These emotions, disguised as they are, can be a full of trickery as the chemicals themselves.

Today I Will Remember

Keep an eye on the side door.
