LUST AND YOUR CHARACTER DEFECTS

There is a definite correlation between your character defects and your sexual acting out. For example, your lying enables you keep acting out. Your lack of empathy (that ability to feel the pain of another) allows you to continue using people.

By the time you have worked through step four, you will have identified many of your character defects. But for now, let's look at a few common defects among sexual addicts:

  • Poor boundaries.
  • Victimization of people.
  • Isolation.
  • Lying.
  • Anger.
  • Pride.
  • Not connected to God.
  • Projection of blame.

Your defects will continue to set you up for a lifestyle of sexual addiction. However, as you confront your defects, and allow God and the program to change you—you will not be so easily victimized by lust.

As you work the program you are approaching the problem from two different angles. First, you are refusing to lust, and second you are constantly working at becoming a better person in all the areas of your life. Each of these approaches helps you to achieve victory over lust as a lifestyle. Today, reconnect yourself not to lust and to surrender your life to God.
