I, Forgive Myself
Many of us are always forgiving others for what they do but we end up neglecting one person that needs the most forgiving yourself. We carry life’s scars and battles on our shoulders and never notice how much they weigh us down until we are stressed out and ready to tap out. Some believe they have forgiven themselves but yet they still talk negatively to themselves. Negative talk holds us back and causes us to be bound. God said he forgives you and forgets it so why don’t we do the same also? I get that this world is harsh and it will constantly bring up your past as a reminder of who you were, how you were and what you did but one thing it can’t control is your future.
God holds your future and there is so much to gain from releasing all the baggage that continues to hold you back. You can’t go back to change what happened, but you can start the healing process now. Each of us has a testimony to tell and a life story to share that can help the next person going through a similar situation. Your past is someone’s present, forgive yourself today and allow your healing process to begin.
How can I work on forgiving myself:
- Remember: You can’t change the Past– We can’t re-do our past but we can re-create a new journey, it’s our life we made mistakes and things happened that we couldn’t control. We are still our own director we have the power to change it and control what happens now.
- Love who you are now– Sometimes we find it hard to love ourselves at this moment because the past is still lingering on us. You may not be where you want to be yet, but love who and where you are today.
- Fill your life with positive energy- Learn to get rid of the negative self-talk, put post-its all over your house of positive affirmations. Fill your squad circle with positive people, go positive places and continue to do positive things that bring love and joy into your life.
What positive things have you done to overcome something?
Leave a Print
There is always someone in the world that needs to be inspired, encouraged or helped in other ways. So, that means a job in this field will always be open. The reasons we go through things in life and make it through are not just for the up building of our faith but for others as well. So when we are blessed we try to be blessings to others. I don’t know your calling but you do, and with that calling change the world. Become great at what you do and put forth all your blood, sweat, and tears into it.
When you leave this earth and everytime someone mentions your name, they should smile and have a good report.They should be able to keep your legacy alive because God saw fit to give you a gift that would change minds, hearts, and souls of many. Reach deep down into your inner self, find what you love and blossom.
As you go through this week think on this:
Are you doing something that is going to leave a special print in the lives of many people?
I decided to do a quote this week instead of a photo…
Everything will work out. Things will get better. You are important. You are worthy of great things. You are loveable. The time is now. This too shall pass. You can be who you really are. The best is yet to come. You are strong. You can do this.
I was roaming through Pinterest and found this quote, it has such a powerful meaning. Many of us tell ourselves some ugly things, that most of the time we end up believing.We let our past dictate our future, our pain define who we are. We find it so difficult to find ourselves because we are buried under a mask with many layers.
-Chronic illness sufferers have to go through life in pain all day long and still find the strength to smile and show love to the people around them.
-Women/Young girls have to make them self-pretty and good enough for the other girls/women so that they can fit in with the crowd.
-Men/Young men have to show off how much of a man they can be in order to be identified as a real man.
My point is it seems like everyone has to prove something to someone just to fit in and be noticed. Society has a meaning of what you should be and what you shouldn’t, causing the real you to hide and never show itself. The real you wants to show but society says no. It’s time to stomp on the opinions of others and realize you are your own person. Society doesn’t define you, your illness doesn’t define you, even the people closest to you. You are your own being let it shine for the world to see no matter what society says peel back the layer of masks and be yourself. There is no one else made just like you!
Have a blessed Tuesday 💜
