The program will be perfect only when we are perfect. We must let go of our childish all-or-nothing attitude and become more realistic. –Day by Day | More…

Bad behavior is sometimes justified as a form of self-expression. In our program, we should modify any behavior that offends or hurts others.

If we have been too brutally frank in our comments, for example, maybe we’re at fault. What we call honesty is really a form of cruelty. Other people are entitled to be treated fairly and decently. –Walk In Dry Places/Mel B. | More…

We finally begin to understand that most of us have different needs.  Ours are more permanent than the needs of a person with a broken leg.

After being ill for a while, we realize it’s up to us to let others know what we are feeling and what our needs are.  Then we can look for understanding, not pity. Exploiting the role of “sick person” is one behavior we need to guard against. –One More Day
