During our alcoholism and addiction, we become isolated from society and the ones we love. We believe it is easier to hide than acknowledge the pain we have caused the people who care for us. Once we find the rooms and begin the journey through the 12- Step process we begin to see how our isolating has continued to harm others. In Step Four, we take a deep look at how our actions have harmed others. In Step Nine we get the opportunity to make amends for these harmful actions. As a result of this work, we begin to step out of isolation and feel the love of our family, friends, and God.
I will step out of isolation and surround myself with God’s love.
