There are few things more common in AA and NA than new members possessing an overwhelming fear of the fourth step.
To help, here’s Cyndi Masters.
She gave an amazing talk on the fourth step a number of years ago, explaining the hows and whys of the process, some of the challenges, and outlining the rewards of doing a fearless moral inventory. For a number of years, I’ve had sponsees listen and take notes on this talk as an introduction to working 4 & 5; almost everyone has found it helpful. A few have found her talk life & program changing.
Whatever your response, I hope you gain courage and fortitude as you prepare to take inventory of your life.
