To have courage, to be unafraid, are gifts of my recovery.
They empower me to ask for help and to go forth in making
my amends with a sense of dignity and humility. Making amends
may require a certain amount of honesty that I feel I lack,
yet with the help of God and the wisdom of others, I can reach
within and find the strength to act. My amends may be accepted,
or they may not, but after they are completed I can walk with
a sense of freedom and know that, for today, I am responsible.
