Curiosity is the fifth step on your journey to Hope. Curiosity is a loving means of self-examination. It is the willingness to retrace your steps and examine all the factors that have woven together to create this intricate mess you find yourself in.  By unpacking all your emotional baggage and accepting the truths that you will discover about yourself and what things have shaped the insecurities and fears that have driven you to make so many fateful and destructive decisions, you will begin healing parts of you that have been hurting for a lifetime.  Slowly, the compulsion to keep your focus on your struggles will begin to fade away, and you will release yourself from the emotional ties that keep you engaged in the struggle. The release of so much pain will allow yourself to become wholly new.
