STEP NINE Having identified the people, I have harmed, I will now go and make restitution to them.
Unless to do is going to cause them or others pain or suffering.
Having completed steps 1 to 8 we start step nine, aware that some of the resentment we have been carrying has been unnecessary and needs to be let go of. Restitution to others whilst it may make them feel better is not for their benefit, it is for ours. Step nine is an important part of the recovery process and doing it right will free us from many passed guilts and sets us up for the positive life God has in store for us from here on in.
