Hello everyone,

Yesterday I was reading and writing my own story in details (on paper) and a question came up, how could I do to forgive my self, not what I have done in recent years but more on the early time when i was 9-10 years old, root of my addiction, I know that writting my history and sharing with my group and bishop will help me, because the shame from that time and as my therapist told me,

"you must forgive your self if you want to move forward"

4 months ago I confessed to my bishop my wrongs and it was difficult and I made a lot of changes in my life, attending 12-steps meeting each week, regular contact with my bishop and therapist but during my relapse 2 month ago I did something bad during that time and did not confess or was not able to confess, and now it is clear to me that because of my past sins I must confess to my bishop in order to stay on the recovery path and move forward,

I will meet with my bishop tonight, and speak about it, a part of me is saying that I must hide my secret but i know what I have to do and I will do it.

"We cannot keep one foot in the Church and one foot in the world. One reason is the world and the Church are rapidly diverging. We will lose our balance.We know that "no man can serve two masters." Some, I fear, are attempting to do what President Marion G. Romney described as trying to "serve the Lord without offending the devil." "
