Forgiving both others & yourself 🤍🙏🏼

Personally I acknowledge that I’m not always the best at forgiving. I’m terribly hard on my myself & at times hold myself at a standard that is unreachable. When I do something I regret I cling to it, relive it, & punish myself over & over again. For others I am more forgiving to than I am myself but I can still struggle with letting go in my need “to win”.

When forgiving my own actions I have recently reached a better place. My mom, who I love & admire, told me “You learn from your experiences. From there you grow”. In those moments I have wanted to desperately turn back the clock & make right the wrongs I realize now they were moments of growth, as our bones hurt as children as we grow so do our hearts & souls as we learn knew lessons. I’m working to see the moments I “fucked up” as opportunities to do better & be better. Knowing that we all have moments of regrets or wanting to change, another way we are connected on such a deep level.

As for others I have felt hurt & wronged, my immediate response is a burning fire inside me that wants to lash out - to play the role of karma… which is not my place. I’m also discovering the greatest “payback” is just to be happy & live your best life. Create boundaries while asking the question “I wonder what they are going through? Been through? What pain, struggle & conflict they may be going through” For more than likely this is not about me but about them & I do my best to wish them to find love & happiness within themselves.

I’m discovering forgiving, letting shit go, brings you to live ever more present & happy within yourself. It can be challenging, believe me I know, & it will always be work in progress but cultivating that inner awareness is worth it.

Forgive others, create boundaries where needed. Forgive yourself & move forward.
