Step Five Letter

Dear D.A. Sponsor,

The last action for Step 5 in the workbook is to write a thank you letter to the person who heard my Step 5. So here it is.

I really appreciate the time and compassion you gave me to support me through this important step. I felt secure and happy the next day, and I think it’s because I felt really heard and seen by you. You showed a lot of empathy with me with my relationship with my family members and that was very comforting and validating. 

I really appreciate that you are very laid back and you aren’t at ALL controlling. This gives me space to discern and explore what I am feeling and what God is saying to me and it helps me get to know and accept myself. It makes me feel connected to God and my own recovery. 

I really appreciate that you speak slowly, as I speak very fast and am often abrupt and I want to become calm and gentle. So you are modelling this to me, which is helpful.

I feel really safe with you. You haven’t made me feel condemned or criticised ever, not once. And I am very grateful God has given you to me as a sponsor. 

Thank you. D.A. Sponsee
