Forgive Yourself

“Finally, we offer forgiveness to ourselves. If we can truly give love to ourselves we will be able to then receive love from another. Can we acknowledge that we have faults, but that we are not just our faults? That we don’t always do things perfectly, but we do the best we can? Breathing in deeply, repeat, There are many ways that I have harmed myself through my thoughts, words and actions. There are countless ways that I have hurt and injured myself. I have betrayed, caused sadness and abandoned myself, consciously and unconsciously, due to my own anger, hurt and confusion. I acknowledge these now. I offer forgiveness to myself. May I be forgiven...Breathe in love and forgiveness into your heart and feel the healing power of giving this to yourself.” (p. 272)

Helpful suggestions for all of us…

  1. So why is a car’s windshield so large and the rear view mirror so small? Because our past is not as important as our future. So, look ahead and move on.
  2. Friendship is like a book. It takes a few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.
  3. All things in life are temporary. If it’s going well, enjoy it, that won’t last long. If it’s going badly, don’t worry, that won’t last long either.
  4. Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles, it takes away today’s peace.
