The truth will set you free.
If you’re like most recovering sex and porn addicts, you’ll find that as you work Step 5 a sense of relief sets in. Grudges, resentments, fears, and shame that have contaminated your soul for years miraculously vanish as soon as the underlying events are exposed. Many recovering sex and porn addicts state that completing the fifth step was the turning point in their recovery. They say that sharing their deepest, darkest secrets not only with themselves and God, but with another human being, caused them to feel as if they were finally ‘a member’ of their 12-step fellowship.
Task for Today
Accept that the truth, ugly as it may be, is a vital part of your recovery.
