As I look at myself practicing the Fourth Step, it is easy
to gloss over the wrong that I have done, because I can easily
see it as a question of "getting even" for a wrong done to
me. If I continue to relive my old hurt, it is a resentment
and resentment bars the sunlight from my soul. If I
continue to relive hurts and hates, I will hurt and hate myself.
After years in the dark of resentments, I have found the sunlight.
I must let go of resentments; I cannot afford them.
