there is some apprehension with many of us,
when planning amends.
It is understandable to be uncomfortable when
confronting the prospect of making amends to
those we have harmed.
I actually learned something when first taking
this important step.
My first amends to my ex-wife went surprisingly well,
as she began confessing to behaviors similar to mine!
I was a bit shocked, but also relieved that we are only
human and subject to temptation.
The experience was a relief and quite cathartic.
What she urged me to do as my best amends for her
and my son, were not verbal; but just in continuing
to maintain my recovery. they had heard the "I'm sorry's"
too many times in the past.
