Step 5

“Those who make it through these times show a courage not their own.”

I am off to the Jonkershoek Forest in Stellenbosch with my sponsor to complete step five, which is “Admitting to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

I am apprehensive, but excited to get another step done, under the belt. I am hoping it won’t be an emotional day, but perhaps that is the wrong thing to hope for, seeing as how I used the drugs to negate all emotion for so many years. Instead, I must embrace the emotion of the day, learn how to feel, so I can grow and progress.

I can see that, now.
