May 28, 2015 – Step by Step

Step by Step

Thursday, May 28, 2015

Today, my character defects in my Fourth Step and the amends in my Eighth Step are not confined to wrongs of commission but also to my wrongs of omission. With that reality, my Fourth and Eighth Steps, hopefully, will be more honest. My moral inventory and amends I have tried before have focused on things I have done or said, but they have not included my wrongs done by not saying or doing what I should have. Maybe I neglected or refused to return love or support that someone showed me in my darkest days, or maybe I didn’t answer someone’s call for help for whatever reason. Today, I return to my Fourth and Eighth steps to decide if I owe restitution not for what I did, but for what I didn’t do. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
