It’s so common for us to beat ourselves up over things we have done in the past. The way we treated people, treated ourselves, acted, said things in haste and mistakes we’ve made. Though if it wasn’t for these situations we would not be the expanded version of ourselves that we are today.
We are meant to make mistakes for this is how we grow. These old hurts, guilt, shame and fears we hang on to and beat ourselves up about are just all old stories and we have to remember that we are not the same person now that we were back then.
We have grown, we have learnt and we are human. Forgive yourself for the past. You owe it to yourself! For when we can forgive ourselves and look back without all the shame and fear, we embrace the knowledge we have gained and set ourselves free.
