Reflection For The Day

All of The Program’s Twelve Steps ask us to go contrary to our natural inclinations and desires:  they puncture, squeeze, and finally deflate our egos.  When it comes to ego deflation, few Steps are harder to take then the Fifth, which suggest that we “admit to God, To Ourselves,  and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.”  Few steps are harder to take, yes, but scarcely any Step is more necessary to long-term freedom from addiction and peace of mind.  Have I quit living by myself with the tormenting ghoset of yesterday?

Today I Pray

May God give me strength to face that great ego-pincher — Step Five.  May I not hesitate to call a trusted hearer of Fifth Steps, set up a meeting and share it.  By accepting responsibility for my behaviror, God and one other.  I am actually unburdening myself.

Today I Will Remember

My Fifth Step pain is also my liberation.
