  • Drafted a probing and courageous moral record of ourselves.
  • Revealed the dark aspect of our behaviour to God, ourselves, and others.
  • We humbly want God to help us eliminate our shortcomings.
  • We humbly ask that he removes our shortcomings.
  • Prepared a list of all those people we have hurt and willing to compensate them all.
  • If we know that reconciling with them will harm nobody, we do so at any time or place.
  • Self-evaluation is a continuous process on the road to recovery, and admit wrong.
  • Continue to implore the blessing of our almighty God through prayers and reflections to further improve our communication with him.
