Forgiving ourselves and others can be very challenging. It's a complicated humanistic process that is vital to our growth and healing. Here are a few thoughts to consider:
- Explore the concepts of moral, ethical, spiritual, financial, and lawful accountability.
- Acknowledge the guilt you feel. Denying it will only give it more power.
- Say, "I feel guilty," not, "I am guilty." Your mistakes do not define you.
- Apologize to yourself, and anyone else you may have hurt.
- In addition to an apology, be willing to make amends.
- Remember, you are doing the best you can, that's all anyone can do.
- Learn and grow from your mistakes, and avoid repeating them.
- Realize that you are not perfect, and that's OK.
- Be patient. It's often easier to forgive others than it is to forgive yourself.
- It's OK to forgive, and not to forget. Honor your values, and create healthy boundaries.
