By holding on to regret and disappointment with myself, I am only punishing myself. Just like everyone else in the world, I have made mistakes, but I am willing to forgive myself.
Forgiving myself is easy. I have everything to gain when I forgive myself. I gain peace of mind, emotional freedom, and a new perspective on life.
I am free of my past when I forgive myself.
I avoid the belief that I must be perfect to be content or happy. Mistakes are part of the game of life. I accept that I make mistakes and exercise poor judgement from time to time.
I learn from my mistakes and become a wiser version of myself each day. Forgiving myself allows me to become the best person I can be.
I am willing to forgive others, so I must be willing to forgive myself, too. Self-forgiveness gives me the greatest level of freedom. Each time I forgive myself, I release myself from emotional bondage. I am then free to grow and develop fully.
Forgiving myself is a daily habit. Each day I forgive myself and learn from my errors.
Today, I release myself from the past. I forgive myself for my past transgressions and move forward with confidence and positivity. I am free to choose the life I want.
1. What are the three things I regret the most? What can I learn from those mistakes?
2. How would I feel if I chose to forgive myself for all of my mistakes?
3. What is it costing me to not forgive myself? What do I think I am gaining by holding on to the past?
