Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
–Step Five
Step Five can be scary.  We’re to take the wrongs we listed in our Fourth Step and share them with God, ourselves, and another person. We may look for an easier, softer way,  but Step Five stops us. We’re to share the exact nature of our wrongs. Why? So we can take a load off ourselves. So we won’t drink again. By totally sharing our past wrongs, we can belong once more. We can heal. We start to forgive ourselves. We become more humble. When you share your Fifth Step, holding nothing back, you deserve the peace this Step will bring you.
