    FEBRUARY 18 Reflection for the Day
    We learn in Gamblers Anonymous that we cannot punish anyone without punishing ourselves. The release of my tensions, even justified, in a punishing way leaves behind the dregs of bitterness and pain. This was the monotonous story of my life before I came to Gamblers Anonymous. So in my new life, I’d do well to consider the long-range benefits of simply owning my emotions, naming them, and thus releasing them.

    Does the voice of God have a chance to be heard over my reproachful shouting?

    Today I Pray

    May I avoid name-calling, ego-crushing exchanges. If I am angry, may I try to assign my anger to what someone did instead of what someone is. May I refrain from downgrading, lashing out at character flaws, or mindless abuse. May I count on my Higher Power to show me the way.

    Today I Will Remember

    To deal with anger appropriately.
