Forgive Yourself

Forgive yourself. Give yourself grace. 

Grace for childhood errors.

Grace for bad relationship decisions.

Grace for the mistake you could not share with anyone.

Grace for the public disgrace you went through.


Forgive yourself. Have mercy on yourself. 

Mercy for that one youthful exuberant day that cost you everything. 

Mercy for parenting mistakes.

Mercy for not being there for that deceased loved one.

Mercy for being at the wrong place at the wrong time

Mercy for letting go...for not letting go.


"Having asked God for forgiveness, accept release, then truly forgive yourself and turn your back definitely on the matter.” - Norman Vincent Peale

"Forgive yourself first. Release the need to replay a negative situation over and over again in your mind. Don’t become a hostage to your past by always reviewing and reliving your mistakes. Don’t remind yourself of what should have, could have or would have been. Release it and let it go. Move on.” - Les Brown
