In my recovery, there's a lot of shame when I'm applying the steps and taking an honest inventory of my life. Step 10 has to do with taking a daily and personal inventory and promptly admitting when we are wrong. With that being said, shame has actually helped change my addictive behaviors so that I don’t keep making the same mistakes that inflicted shame in the first place. The steps have helped me to learn it's important to take an inventory and understand the underlying causes that drives my addiction and bad behaviors. I’m going to continue working hard to forgive myself and change my behaviors so I don’t have to feel shame anymore.
