Step 6 - Adult Children of Alcoholics (2017-05-11)

6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

We don't just have habits. We fall in love with them or define ourselves by them.  If I have to stop pleasing people, stop putting others first, stop going along to get along, then I won't be myself.  So even though we find through working the steps that we need to let go of something, we may not immediately be ready to let go of it.

We need to emotionally prepare ourselves that things are going to be different, that we are going to change, and that an aspect that we have come to know and be comfortable with has to go away.  To work this step, get ready to accept that you are going to be a different you now.  It's scary, but you'll be glad you did.
