I must remember not to let fear of what others will think;
or my petty, tiresome score keeping (a silly tally of imagined or magnified slights which provide tidy kindling to the bonfire of my resentment)
squelch the impulse to act upon this truth.
To be generous of spirit and kind in deed to those around me is one of the tangible byproducts of recovery.
We in AA know that those kindnesses -- however small they may seem at the time -- can help someone stay in the meeting,
and thus stay in recovery,
and so stay alive.
Possibly a melodramatic extrapolation?
Very true nonetheless?
