for·give

fərˈɡiv/

verb

  1. Stop feeling angry or resentful toward (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake.

 

The hardest person to forgive is yourself. What are some of your regrets, mistakes, missed opportunities? What do you need to forgive yourself for?

 

Wooooooooohooooo. The word forgiveness?! Boy oh boy. I agree the hardest person to forgive is ourselves. How come? I don’t know about you but, have you notice that we tend to quickly forgive others more than we forgive ourselves. I don’t know why but, we tend to beat ourselves up more than focusing on what others has done to us. Its certain things we cannot change in our lives that we wish we can change. Unless you have a time machine to go back into time to change what you did then there’s your answer but, let me ask you a question. If you were to build a time machine, would you go back to change something or make something a little different were you CAN forgive yourself? Well, no (really, Stacey?? You wouldn’t change a thing about your past).

 

If you were to ask me years ago, do I regret anything? I would have told you about a relationship I was in but, as I’ve gotten older. I realize what is the point of regrets? Regrets are more to tear you down and make you feel bad about yourself. Holding you back from greatness that you can deliver. I didn’t want that for myself, I wanted more for myself and when you want more for yourself, it becomes easier to forgive yourself. Am I perfect? No, do I wish I could have done something different in my past? No because I believe the things that we do in life are there to teach us more than to harm us…… I learned to not call my mistakes – a regret moment but, to embrace my mistakes because I can move on from whatever has happened. The way I can forgive myself is letting go & moving on.

 

 

Side Note: YOU ARE NOT YOUR PAST. No matter what you’ve done in your past YOU ARE NOT YOUR PAST. Your past doesn’t define who you are as a person.
