This step is exactly what I needed to go back to in my recovery. In life’s chaos we can get vulnerable to fear, anger, jealous, and just emotions all together.
I have found myself hung up on resentments and fear. My higher power had me listening to my meeting last night, big book study. Step 10 brought me back where I needed to remember to spot check inventory of myself.
Doing a spot-check inventory is when you have an emotional disturbance. This is a quick, spur-of-the-moment inventory concerned with day-to-day problems. It helps to silence volatile emotions, build character and promote a positive way of life.
Avoid making quick-tempered decisions; train yourself to take a step back and breathe.
Survey your situation honestly.
Admit when you’re wrong.
Forgive others when they’re wrong.
Focus on progress, not perfection.
When we take a moment and do this in hard times of our lives. We can get back on track and love ourselves and the ones we love.
