Give Yourself the Gift of Self-Forgiveness
We are told to forgive those who have perpetrated ills on us, but we are seldom told to forgive ourselves for those same issues. Self-forgiveness carries with it intended change so that we don’t remain in the same destructive behavior pattern that caused our concerning behavior in the first place. Self-forgiveness is necessary to self-evaluate, self-reflect, and redefine who we want to be and how we want to function as individuals. The power of forgiving another person is huge – it frees the heart to feel good again – while self-forgiveness is a game-changer that will make us better people in relation to ourselves and ultimately others.
