Step 4 Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
The spiritual principal of this step is courage. For the longest time I thought that I was courage impaired. I believe that if I would have had courage in my past, my life would have been so different. I came to this program paralyzed in fear. By working my steps and attending my Coda meetings I learn that courage is not absence of fear but instead is acting in spite of fear. Fear in motion as some people call it. I learned that I did have a lot of courage. Opening the door of my Coda meeting for the first time took a lot of courage. Having an open mind, asking a person to be my sponsor and my willingness to work my steps are a few examples of courage. I still have fear in some instances but since I have faith and I know that god is always at my side, I can act and be sure I’ll be fine.
