I would be interested to hear people's thoughts on a situation that arose.
I wouldn't think about it. There are many other things that I could be thinking about -- that could make a difference in my life and in the lives of others.
There are things like that happening all the time. Sometimes, I let it bother me and it causes problems for me -- and, it doesn't do anything at all in regards to the other person.
Many times, especially when it comes to another A.A., I have to remind myself that "Many do not comprehend that the alcoholic is a very sick person."
Soon after I entered A.A., I began to hear "if you don't take the other persons inventory -- you won't have to make their amends."
I'm not sure if this is what that really means -- but, this is how I understand it today: "My life is the manifestation of my thoughts. And, I will attract and manifest that which I think about."
If my real purpose in life is to fit myself to be of maxium service to God and the people about me -- my job is to be fitting myself -- rather than fitting the people about me.
And, if I simply wish to be helpful to those who are afflicted -- I'm not going to be very helpful to them or myself, if I'm trying to fit them.
With all that said -- I still find myself, at times, looking at the other guy/girl and what they are doing. I'm not perfect yet, but I am working on it! And, there is lots more work for me to do!
Sometimes, I have to look at the other guy and say something like "But for the grace of God -- that's him doing that and not me!" And, I have to remember things like "love and tolerance is our code." I have a difficult time straightening out my own problems and I'm powerless to straighten out other people.
