Forgiving someone for the wrongs they have do to us can be challenging but forgiving ourselves can be a greater challenge. The bible talks about the importance of forgiveness in Matthew 6:14-15 and Mark 11:25.

Here are 4 reasons why it is important to practice self forgiveness.

  1. Diagnose why you need to forgive yourself  ~ Are your memories making you feel guilty and hindering your from self forgiveness?
  2. Accept that failures do not make you a bad person ~ remember failure does not make you a bad person.
  3. Do not be afraid to start again ~ Learn from your experiences and past mistakes and move on. Use them as stepping stones to a brighter future.
  4. Adapt a new mind set by learning from past mistakes ~ Set Goals for your future.

 

My prayer is that from this post you will take the necessary steps to start forgiving yourself  and live the life you were created to live.
