Sometimes when we go and make amends to people, we’re not going for them, we’re not going for the higher power, we’re going because we want to get it all off of us. That’s not fair. If you’re doing it simply because you feel bad with it all on your shoulders and now you want to go make an amends and put it on somebody else? This step says we made a direct amends except when to do so would injure them or others. That’s why you need help, that’s why you need a sponsor when you do this step.
