Ultimately, the only person you need to forgive is yourself. Any anger, resentment, or grudges that you hold toward others can always be traced back to feelings you have about yourself. This is why some of your attempts to forgive others seemed unsuccessful. Until you forgive yourself, self-reproach will bleed into your relationships with those around you.
Self-forgiveness is different from accepting blame. Instead, it means first facing your feelings of guilt or anger. Admitting these emotions to yourself releases the power they had over you previously while they remained hidden secrets. Your self-candor will lead you to the understanding that you didn’t do anything bad, because nothing wrong can happen in God’s universe.
Today, forgive yourself for what you think you did or didn’t do. Release the illusion of blame or self-contempt.Since you’re 100 percent love, just like your Creator, you’re only capable of cherishing yourself.
Thought for Today
I release any judgment toward myself as i view myself through the lens of love. I have compassion for myself, knowing that I am always doing the best I can. God’s universe is perfect, now and always.
