Forgive Yourself

Hello Honeybees,

We are all a work in progress. No one has it all together no matter what their Instagram feed or Facebook page says. I know that I am definitely a serious work in progress. I’m working on me! One of the major things that I am working on is forgiving myself.

The weird thing is that I will forgive, not necessarily forget, a person that has done me wrong. But when it comes to me forgiving me that’s where I have a block. I hold myself to a much higher standard than I do other people because I can only control me & my actions.

I’ve made some huge mistakes in my past that I am still trying to forgive myself for. I have asked God for forgiveness & I believe that He has forgiven me, so why am I still holding on? The holding on is keeping me from moving forward. I need to leave all of that baggage in the past where it belongs. Y’all that stuff is heavy, too heavy for me to keep carrying. It takes up to much mental & emotional space. I need that space to enjoy my NOW.

So as you are reading this know that I am one gigantic step closer to forgiving myself, to letting the past go and moving forward. From this day forward I will no longer entertain what I use to do. I will only entertain what I do now and in the future. I’m leaving the past where it belongs….in the past. I forgive ME!

What past mistake are you holding on to? What’s stopping you from letting them go?

One thought on “Forgive Yourself

  1. You know you are right. I had did something in my early years that it took me a life time to forgive myself. When l turn 56 I learned to forgive myself. It wasn’t easy but I learned I was the one hurting me. I couldn’t understand stand why no one loved me in a relationship. It was me I didn’t love me. I had ask God to forgive me but I didn’t forgive me. Once I realize I was the problem not letting people in. I had to learn to love everything about me. Now I’m still a working progress but I am in a much better place.
    One day I was listening to TDJakes about forgiving who have hurt you. We have to forgive those because those people are gone with their life and we are holding on to the hurt.
