Step Six: Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
With my very first Step One, I began to accept myself for who I really was. At that point I was an alcoholic and a bulimic with a riot of uncontrolled emotions. With Steps Two and Three, I committed myself to follow a program of action I trusted, having faith this could change everything so long as I was taking care of getting my basic needs met. With Steps Four and Five, I began to recognize my responsibility for my actions and understand the damage I had caused. Fear, pride, selfishness, stubbornness, and anger always crop up in my 4th and 5th Steps, as do self-pity and resentment. Step Six reminds me that I cannot “fix” my character defects directly; that would be like performing brain surgery on myself.
