“It is plain that a life
which includes deep resentment
leads only to futility and unhappiness.
But with the alcoholic, whose hope
is the maintenance and growth
of a spiritual experience,
this business of resentment
is infinitely grave.
We found that it is fatal.”
BB p 66
What expectations ???
Expectations are resentments waiting to be born.
The alcoholic always has someone to blame.
If only they would have read my mind they
would have done what I expected of them
and since they didn’t do what I wanted
I’ll show them
I’ll cut off my nose to spite my face
and I will go out and tie on a really good drunk.
Today, keep your expectations to yourself and
expect not to pick up the first drink.
Recovery is one day at a time.
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
And, if no one has told you yet today,
God loves you and so do we.
