Keep It Simple #essentialsofrecovery

AA states that resentments is the “number one offender” among our members, that it puts more alcoholics in the graves than any other thing.

—Stools and Bottles

We can get high on anger. That’s why it’s dangerous. We get a false sense of power from being angry. Our anger turns into resentments. Resentments turn into hate. Hate eats at our spiritual core.

We can get rid of resentments and hate through prayer and helping others. That’s why we we’re to pray for those who have wronged us, so our hearts don’t fill with hate. This why, we use our energy in a healthy way. And our serenity will grow as we see that anger no longer has so much power over our actions.

Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, help me stop using anger, resentments and hate for control over other people and advents I don’t like.

Action for the Day: I’ll list all the people I’m angry at. I’ll say a simple prayer for each of them.
