8. Made a list
of all persons
we had harmed,
and became willing
to make amends
to them all”
BB p 59
If one was diligent and thorough while completing the Fourth Step
the list required for Step Eight should be complete.
The most important part, the most important words
in this step are ‘ and became willing ‘ .
This means every name should be on the list
and the amends will come if your Higher Power
deems them necessary.
This exercise becomes most meaningful
when we omit no person,
even if we do not remember their names.
Remember, it is not about them,
it is about your willingness to change
your old behaviors and atone for past sins.
Recovery is one day at a time.
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
And, if no one has told you yet today,
God loves you and so do we.
