My body is in almost w/o pain, even after 72 years. But, the pain of commitments not met, opportunities ignored, and loved ones shunning took a huge toll on me. The fifth step responsibilities are met, if you sincerely try to make amends is the first step where healing starts. Surrender & taking inventory leave me both vulnerable & aware of my transgressions. The armor that steps 1-5 gives me is not to protect, but to accept what I have done & the people I have hurt & to know that even if my sincere amends are refused I have met the responsibilities taken & met by Me in my Recovery.

Take inventory & be grateful every day. Make amends as necessary and reach out to your fellow addicts every day, for the recovery you save may well be your own.
