~*~A.A. Thoughts For The Day~*~
"It is a spiritual axiom that every time we are disturbed, no matter what the cause, there is something wrong with us. If somebody hurts us and we are sore, we are in the wrong also. But are there no exceptions to this rule? What about 'justifiable' anger?
If somebody cheats us, aren't we entitled to be mad? Can't we be properly angry with self-righteous folk? For us in AA these are dangerous exceptions. We have found that justifiable anger ought to be left to those better qualified to handle it."
