Unicist Relationship Management: The Ethics of Amendments

The unicist approach to relationship management demands that amendments be made every time damages or mistakes have been done.

Only people who truly want to add value in their relationships with others can amend the damages they produce. Amendments are the “quality assurance” of the relationship management processes.

The process of amending requires substituting what has been damaged. To do so it is necessary to truly regret what has been done and develop a common good action to build up the relationship that has been damaged.

It requires being fully aware of the damage or mistake which implies a commitment that this action will never happen again. The common good action implies being aware of what has been damaged in the relationship.  It has to be considered that damages or mistakes necessarily weaken personal reliability.

The final goal of amendments is to substitute what has been destroyed. There is no doubt that the amendment cannot be a substitute but it can be a succedaneum that can add functionality while it demonstrates the true intentions of the one who has done the damage.

Amendments are very “energy consuming” for the one who has to do them. That is why only people who have the energy focused on a relationship can do them. People who do not produce spontaneous amendment actions cannot build complementary relationships with the environment.
