Don’t look for someone to solve your problems, look for someone who won’t let you go through them alone.
Because of the difficult and painful emotions that Step Four tends to bring up, it is wise to increase your meeting attendance while working this step. You might also want to increase the amount of time you spend with friends in recovery, the number of conversations you have with your sponsor, and the number of sessions you have with your therapist. If you are in a relationship, you should let your significant other know that you’re working on Step Four and you’ll likely be feeling more vulnerable than usual while doing it. The more support you get, the better off you will be.
