Are you mad at yourself?
You know better, but you just aren’t doing better?
It’s time to forgive yourself.
Forgiveness does not mean what you did was okay.
To forgive yourself is to let those painful stories die.
In order to do this, you must first own the story.
Own what you did that you are not proud of.
Once you own this story, shame won’t be able to fester and grow.
Next, forgive yourself … by letting those painful stories die.
Need some examples of forgiveness?
- I forgive myself for being so hard on me.
- I forgive myself for not loving myself unconditionally.
- I forgive myself for not being my own best friend.
- I forgive myself for all the lies I’ve chosen to believe.
Now, from this place of forgiveness what’s the new story you want to create? Here are some examples:
- I’m a person who makes mistakes, learns from them, and gets herself back up.
- I’m worthy of love + belonging.
- I am learning to enjoy being with myself.
- I am able to have fun with me.
- I get to choose what I want to do (when by myself).
- I am creating the life I really want to live for myself.
Choose one of the stories above, or write your own.
Now you’re on the path to forgiving yourself, by letting those old, painful stories die … and writing your new story.
If you’ve had enough with unforgiveness, with not forgiving yourself, maybe it’s time to finally do something about it …
