What might be the detrimental effects of procrastinating step 5?
To me, the detrimental effects of putting off step 5 could be falling back in to the same errors. It could also be getting scared to even go there and talking myself out of even completing step 5, maybe just “skipping over it” and justifying by saying – “Well, I’ve already talked to bishops in the past about ‘most’ of these things – I’m fine to move on.”
The problem with this is, this is what I’ve been doing for most of my life – submitting my will to God and then taking it right back, being almost all the way honest, but keeping a little to myself. These core issues are why I’ve been in the addiction for as long as I have.
I’m grateful I didn’t procrastinate doing Step 5. I’m excited to be free from the core issues, or at least now recognizing what they are and working to overcome them with God’s help.
I’ll write about things I’m thankful for later today.
