April 2011: Things to Do Instead of Step 4:
From the April 2011 Grapevine Magazine
"Change my sheets, file my bank statements ... watch television."
Here I am: I have six years of sobriety, I’ve done all the Steps, I call my sponsor on a regular basis, I go to meetings, I have a home group and I reach out to newcomers. My problem is that I have a huge resentment against someone. Well, it isn’t entirely accurate to say I have a resentment, because the reality is that I have a list of resentments that’s about five pages long.
I’d like to tell you all the reasons that justify my anger against the guy, but I’ll save that for my sponsor. In my defense, I worked for him for four years.
