Topic for the week: Forgiveness
I was recently in a situation where one of my character defects reared its
ugly head: Impatience, in a situation where I could not understand why the other person was not grasping what was said, to me it was simple, and voiced my opinion much to soon of course. I was gently reminded of my ego, was I also not once there before? Do I know the whole situation before speaking?
It was a humbling experience.
Page 78 Big Book:
“”These obstacles however are very real. The first one and one of the most difficult, has to do with forgiveness. The moment we ponder a twisted or broken relationship with another person, our emotions are on the defensive””
“”Furthermore who am I call the kettle black.””
