“Continued to take personal inventory and when wrong, promptly admitted it.”
DDA Members Share their Experience on Step 10:
“I make mistakes, even in recovery. This Step helps me to keep track of what is going on for me and what I need to work on in my recovery in order to keep progressing.
I tend to put this Step into action whenever I get any powerful emotions such as anger, resentment, anxiety, and fear. I do this because those emotions are usually a sign that something isn’t right in me or that I need to change or work on something.
When I do make mistakes, I try to put them right as quickly as I can, as I don’t like it when things snowball and this can sometimes happen when I make mistakes and don’t admit and put them right. Ultimately though, I have a loving and forgiving Higher Power, and it’s important to acknowledge progress when it comes.”
