Forgiveness can be a very hard step to make. But it is one that is truly vital for you to move on and start feeling better.
The truth is that we usually blame ourselves, at some deep level, for everything that goes wrong in our life. This self-blame is trigged by feelings of guilt, shame and unworthiness.
These feelings of disempowerment have to be healed!
Forgiving ourselves is an essential release from the past. If we don’t, we risk re-creating anything negative that we haven’t unconditionally accepted about ourselves.
Here are some steps to your healing:
STEP ONE: Write the heading on paper: How I perceive the painful mistakes I made.
Now write out the details regarding how you let yourself down. Don’t hold back. Write as much as you can.
STEP TWO: Embrace Your Feelings Fully
Now write about how you feel in regard to what you wrote in Step One. It's really important to have a good cry, or be angry as your write the words describing your feelings. Don’t hold back with your emotions, and make sure you use feeling words. Please know that painful feelings must be acknowledged in order to be shifted.
STEP THREE: Bigger picture perspective.
Now write out – "Even though what I have done to myself hurts, I recognize I was really granting myself the gift of understanding and healing my unhealed parts – so that I can create a true, real and wonderful purposeful life for God.
I hope this helps!
I ❤️ you!
