Step 7

Continue your self-analysis and admit your mistakes promptly.

You must keep taking a personal inventory of yourself and when you are wrong or make a mistake promptly admit it.

This involves your personal commitment to continue to keep an eye out for any defects of character. It also involves your steadfast commitment to readily admit when you are wrong, reinforcing your humility and honesty.

You are encouraged to examine yourself as a part of your daily routine. Just as you addressed your defects, you must keep your successes in check. It’s easy to fall back into a life of pride and self-satisfaction.

You should also avoid the opportunities to fall back into old online patterns. Sharing with know people is fine, but stay off the Internet otherwise. Take a walk, watch a movie, call a friend. Develop new habits.

What Do You Need To Do?

Put all of your recovery work into your daily life, no matter what life throws at you. Day in and day out, you are going to be tested. You are going to have scammers trying to trap you again and again. You have to show yourself that you can remain emotionally stable, immune to the scams and live happily.

Remember, correcting your wrongs is not a one-time thing; you must continue to make self-examination a tireless habit every day. Only then will you continue to grow and progress.

When you have an emotional disturbance or crisis, look at how you are reacting. This spur-of-the-moment observation can help 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, then make a decision. Especially online. After all, wasn’t that what got you in trouble in the first place?

Survey your situation honestly and constantly. Always admit when you’re wrong, and forgive others when they’re wrong. Focus on your progress, not perfection.

Remember, don’t get hung up on this,  because it involves admitting when you’ve done something wrong. It isn’t so much about apologizing to others as it is being aware of your actions that harm yourself and others. It is a very personal process of constant inward reflection.
