Working Step 7

Hello my name is James and I am a recovering sexoholic. Working on Step Seven all weekend is allowing me to work and look at  my addiction in a much different way. Being humble is a characteristic htat I have forgotten for sometime until I started working the steps that has led me to working step seven. Being humble to me means accepting the things I cannot change, accepting the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference. Being grateful for what I have and thankful for the lessons I have learned. A group of fellows that understand the struggles I have faced and over come, and the struggles that I will face in the days to come.

Question 1 asks you what character traits or beliefs block my ability to be humble. Working the steps has quickly stopped a lot of things and has humbled me beyond belief, my ability to be honest was my biggest block.


One of the questions that was asked when doing step 7 Was what happens when I give it to my higher power?

Well when I give it to my higher power I feel relieve from the issues I am facing and my higher power always steps in to take it over and brings peace to me, so I can continue on with what ever I am doing, and this has allowed me to become teachable by listening to my sponsor and working the steps, I am learning how to work my recovery and to allow myself to be humble in everything that I am learning. I am also able to be a better person and express who I am to people around me.

I truly believe that my higher power wants me to see the gifts that I have to offer, so I can share these gifts with the world, and my family and friends, those I have hurt along the way.

Humbly asking our higher power to remove our shortcoming is how I see what “Humbly asking him to remove our shortcomings” means to me. Asking my higher power to to takes my defaults is the only way I see getting through each day. When I look past to my addiction and see how my addiction made me feel, and filled my head with the thoughts that made me act out, how it caused me not being able to complete tasks, because my head was filled with lust and fantasy. Giving this all up to my higher power relieves my thoughts and allows me to be the person that I am meant to be! Just some of my thoughts.

Being humble has enabled me to see my character traits from looking in and has showed me the ways I truly want to be a s a person. I see many gifts that I have to offer as my mind clears, listening and forgiving other are two of my gifts that I admire the most.
