    March 11 Reflection for the Day

    Since I came to Gamblers Anonymous, I’ve begun to recognize my previous inability to form a true partnership with another person. It seems that my egomania created two disastrous pitfalls. Either I insisted upon dominating the people I knew, or I depended on them far too much. My friends in the Program have taught me that my dependence meant demand – a demand for the possession and control of the people and conditions surrounding me.

    Do I still try to find emotional security either by dominating or being dependent on others?

    Today I Pray
    May I turn first to God to satisfy my love hunger, knowing that all God asks from me is my faith. May I no longer cast emotional nets over those I love, either by dominating them or being excessively dependent upon them – which is just another form of domination. May I give others the room they need to be themselves. May God show me the way to mature human relationships.

    Today I will Remember
    To have faith in God’s love.
