(Self) Forgiveness


Everyone makes them.

But people seldom forgive them.

Somehow we understand on a theoretical level that making mistakes is okay. It’s acceptable. In fact, it is the very thing that makes us human and we use that to justify those mistakes. Yet, once the deed is done, we rarely accept ourselves with those mistakes. More difficult than forgiving others for their mistakes is forgiving ourselves for our own.

Exercise self-compassion. Release self judgment. You deserve it. You owe it to yourself to not cause more pain than the mistake. Forgiveness is freedom. And freedom is awesome.
