I Did It!

They say step 4 and 5 of the 12-step addiction recovery program is the scariest.

This is where you take an inventory of your life story accounting for ALL your wrongs, resentments, fears, people you've hurt and selfish behaviors.  And then you admit or confess these wrong-doings to God, yourself and your sponsor.  

So today, I divulged my deepest secrets with my sponsor. 

I survived!

  2. I'm still working on my fourth step and it is such a doozie. I haven't picked it up in over a week. I don't think I'll be done with it until June if not later....resentments...I realized I had more as I lay in bed last night...

    Good for you, April. I'm so proud!

  5. Thanks guys! It was so scary cause I've done a lot of stupid things. But now I can move forward without all my baggage holding me back...at least thats the idea.

  6. WOOT! I'm working the steps in my own life (realized I have some major family-of-origin issues) and I'm at step four and it's been hard, but I'm starting to get why it matters. I have come to realize in the past few years how much 'baggage' I have from patterns in my family and hard things that happened growing up. I want to be free from the beliefs about myself and God and life that I feel have held me back.

    Anyone whose done steps 4 and 5 is a hero of mine. ;)
