Hi. My name is Annie. I am a compulsive overeater.
Step Four talks about making a “searching and fearless moral inventory.”
I don’t think I am anywhere near ready to work on Step Four, but some of the things are popping up in my mind and my life anyway. It seems that my character defects are jumping up and smacking me in the face lately.
One that is hitting me this week is my tendency toward procrastination. I am especially good at procrastinating when it comes to my OA work. I know that I need to do it. I know that I need to face my deep inner-self. Nothing in my life is ever going to change, not for the better anyway, if I don’t examine the reasons why I eat as much as I eat.
So if I know that, why is it that I keep putting off doing any step work?
Just what is it that I am afraid of?
