This is Step 9 in the program of Alcoholics Anonymous and other twelve-step recovery fellowships. These amends are carried out based on the list constructed while doing Step 8. This step is fairly self-explanatory, however there are a few things to consider.
  • Even if the other party was also somehow at fault, the one making the amends has no business addressing the other party's wrong(s).
  • There will simply be some situations in which it is unsafe or impossible to make direct ammends. In cases such as these alternative methods can be taken.
  • Do not place expectations upon the making of amends: some will not be recieved as graciously as others.
  • Some times the best amends one can make is to simply stay away from those who he/she has seriously harmed, and to not inflict those same harms upon others.
