Step 7- Humility

[Humbly asked him to remove our short comings].

The key principle to this step is humility. I have come to understand that as a direct result of my diseased thinking,  I must become humble or face being humiliated. My recovery process has been an up hill journey, yet I have had some pitfalls. My strength truly lies in my recovery and my relationship with myself, higher power and my support network. The choices I make are influenced by consciousness opposed to thoughtlessness and within this, I gain power. In the times when I feel powerless, becoming humble is a force driven by my higher power. I can tell you that sometimes I am amazed at my responses. My outlook on life has surpassed my old belief systems and I look forward to the continued recovery process.
