The entire idea that your perfectly normal feeling of anger is somehow a poison you are choosing to drink just by allowing the feeling… is a 12 step cult platitude designed to stop you from living in your immense power. Reject the very idea that “anger is a luxury you alcoholic/addict cannot afford.” Or the ever-popular “resentment is death.” Anyone who attempts this platitude is trying to shut you up. Anyone who insists your feelings are not facts is abusing you. Anyone who spews such nonsense is gaslighting you. The meme above sums is up perfectly.
What are some other abusive platitudes of the 12 step cult religion? There are hundreds from which to choose.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend with people deserving of your company
