commit, you will have to force push it to remote, which can cause you to overwrite someone's commit which was pushed in the meantime.

Using push flag --force-with-lease instead of --force will not allow you to force push your amended commit if it would overwrite a commit on the remote. You will get an error, pull the remote changes and just repeat the push command.

git commit --amend
git push --force-with-lease

You can go a step further and create a git alias

git config --global alias.kindly "push --force-with-lease"

Which allows you to run git kindly next time you need to "kindly" force push things.
