Good Friday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: forgiving yourself doesn’t mean you forget what you’ve done. It means you stop bringing it up in a negative manner that constantly beats you down. When you hang on to old junk that God has already forgiven, you find yourself dwelling in anger, regret, pity, and guilt. These feelings trap you into a corner of disrespect for yourself and rob you of energy that you could have spent encouraging and interacting with others. You’re here for a short time, and you’re going to mess up. Forgiveness isn’t about rationalizing what you did, or making light of it; forgiveness is about humbling yourself to make amends, and then reminding yourself to make better choices in the future. Life is a learning process and self-forgiveness is one of the lessons you need to learn.
