Anger conquers when unresolved.  —Anonymous—
Emotions need recognition. But not only attention; they also need acceptance as powerful dimensions of who we

are. Their influence over who we are capable of becoming is mighty. Respectful attention and willing acceptance of

our emotions, whether fear or anger or hateful jealousy, takes away their sting. We can prevent them from growing larger than they are. Like a child who screams and misbehaves more and more fiercely until attention is won, our emotions grow larger and more intense the longer we deny their existence. Our emotions bless us, in reality. They enrich our experiences. They serve as guideposts on the road we’re traveling. How we “feel” at any single moment

flags the level of our security, how close we are to our higher power, the level of our commitment to the program.

They serve us well when acknowledged. On the other hand, when ignored or denied, they can immobilize
us, even defeat us. My feelings frequent my being, always. They steer my behavior. They reflect my attitudes.

They hint at my closeness to God.
