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. That one thing is “forgiving yourself”. In the bible John 1:9 states “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
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”.
