Alanon Step 8 (7-29-2018)

Step eight; Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all
Paths to recovery page 81. By working this step we have overcome numerous obstacles and become much more self aware. How do I make a list? One member shared that she makes a list t with columns the first heading is the name of the person harmed, their relationship to me, my harmful act. The reason for my amends i. It is here that the transfer of the names from my  4th step and can add new ones
My share
in order to work this step I needed   to understand what type of harm I did to others. I know that I had been withholding domineering and controlling and did finally admit this has hurt myself and my family. I had to make sure that Iwas clear as to th harm i had done so by  honestly looking at my thoughts and actions i was able to see It happened slowly when by attending meetings, listening with an open mind and heart, making gratitude lists and praying. I found that I became willing to make amends came naturally as I worked the program 
Step Eight Questions 

as I work step eight, how do I see it helping me and my relationship with others?

Do. I recognize  that when my minding someone else's business may have harmed them or others? 
Am I willing to recognize and admit to the above?
Do I understand that willingness is different than making the actual amend?
Have I considered praying for the willingness to become willing ?

Can I share with my group my thoughts and feelings?
