In step four, we realize there are areas of our lives that need attention. We also realize we have trouble seeing or acknowledging those areas. We recognize that our coping strategies for dealing with the stresses of life haven’t always been the healthiest, and some of them have developed into long-term patterns of behaviour that have hurt us and others. In step 4, we make a searching and fearless moral inventory of our lives. As we do, God meets us with unconditional love and grace, helping us step into the adventure of self-discovery.
