Is Forgiving Yourself
Do you make forgiving yourself a daily practice or at least a weekly or a monthly practice?
I know it is a challenge for me, but it is also necessary to do for myself too! I can stew and dwell. I can hold a grudge. I can play the blame game, throw a pity party or go on a gulit trip!
Reflecting . . . Contemplating . . . Forgiving . . .
What is the point? There is NO point! Where does it get me in doing so? NOWHERE! All that holding in and negativity is not a healthy or happy way to live my life. I will just end up driving myself nuts!
I need to practice forgiveness and move on, especially in forgiving myself! I cannot go backwards and rewrite the script. I can start again the next day and do the best that I can do! I am human and I make mistakes. What has happened, has happened! I need to live in the present, accept it and let it go.
It certainly is not my intention to hurt people! I need to better my communicating and listening skills. I want to have happy and healthy relationships with the people in my life! In practicing forgiveness with myself I am able to use my skills in forgiveness with other people and situations.
