I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how I can be a better person. The first thing I need to do is give myself some space in terms of forgiveness. Yesterday cannot be changed, you can only focus on this very moment and how you will be tomorrow. Why don’t we practice that a bit….
I forgive myself for my indiscretions. All of them They do not define who I am as a person or how much I truly care about others. Forgiving myself does not mean that I am pretending that they did not happen, it merely means that I am choosing to move forward and no longer giving them the power to make me suffer. Just like forgiving another, the act of forgiveness does not mean that I have forgotten, it means that I have chosen to no longer suffer because of that experience.
It is a small step, but one that I feel I needed to take. And I might need to do this every day, every morning, until that little voice in my head has quieted.
