Forgiving Yourself

As I look back at my life I think about the journey that I have experienced throughout the years. There is one thing that has really stuck to me in the past 6 months.

“ If we confess our sins, he is faithful

 

This stands out to me because I have been through a time of loss and have found it hard to forgive myself. I have also blamed myself for things I cannot control, not just with loss but in other areas of my life. My past has affected me in ways that I can’t explain but I have grown to understand that if I “believe” I can forgive.

Being able to forgive yourself can set you free! Free from anger, disappointment, and depression. Most of all forgiveness creates a sense of happiness in your life. As a friend once told me “life is about being happy and everyone deserves to be happy”.
