ODAAT March 9


Today's reading is about anger. The reading says losing our temper can be a disease too. It goes on to tell us that "anger-sickness" is an uncontrollable impuse to judge and condemn someone else. The reading likens it to an emotional explosion that brings temporary relief. It reminds the reader about singlemindedness - the assertion that the one who is angered may believe everything they think and everything they themself do is right and the other person is the problem. The reading offers insight by telling the reader that a moment's relief from releasing anger upon another person has consequences for the recovering Alanon. 

Today's Reminder...

reminds us practice self care by making a conscious choice not to give way to anger toward another person and ultimately give away our serenity. We give our power away to another when we do so. It suggests utilizing prayer as a tool for regaining composure, restoring our serenity.

The reading closes with Let me use serenity to cushion the impact of whatever happens outside of me.

I was actually madder at myself than my A's when I realized they could not take from me anything I did not freely give! A game changer in my recovery...
