Forgiving Yourself


Last week, we talked about letting go of those mistakes and failures of the past. An important part of being able to truly let go is to forgive yourself. Forgiveness is a big subject, however let me state that forgiving yourself is not making excuses for what happened. It is accurately taking responsibility for what you were responsible for.  Then processing what happened and coming to terms with what happened, learning from what happened…and reaching the point where you are not holding it against you anymore. You are letting go of and releasing the negative and toxic emotions that can weigh you down and hold you back like an anchor…eventually getting to the point where you remember the event as “forgiven.”  Forgiving ourselves means we resolve come back in a state of “newness” in the spirit of the comeback.
