Inspiration
Recovery is accepting yourself for who you are, no longer waiting for others to define you or approve of you.      Claudia B.        RB p. xxiv

Step 7        Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.
In Step 7 we realize that we cannot remove our shortcomings without the help of a Higher Power.  We may have had moments of freedom from our defects, but they seem to return or take on a new form if we fail to ask for God's intervention.  To our horror, we see a defect reappear in a new obsession or new twist that is torturous to face alone.  In Step 7, we        must muster all the trust or faith that we can.  We rely upon God to remove our defects of character.   RB p. 220
