2) I have been depraved for a while, drinking, smoking ect, so now I have to make amends.
it seems to me that " to make amends" has two meanings: first to make up for/ to compensate eg in the #1
and Second to bettter oneselft and turn into a new leaf like # 2 ( try to become a good person).
What is the real meaning of " to make amends"? please give some example sentences.
Thank alot for your time and efforts.
'To make up for/ to compensate'. 'To better oneself' is just one way to accomplish this. There are plenty of examples available if you google the phrase.
make amends for (what I did wrong) with (the party that was hurt)
I must make amends for my spreading lies with my friend.
Although "with" is more frequent, sometimes "to" is used.
