Free Yourself

Free yourself from your past mistakes, by forgiving yourself for what you have done or went through. Every day is another chance to start over. – Unknown

There is nothing more painful to deal with than our own self-imposed guilt.  I like knowing that you can free yourself from the guilt if you choose to do so.  That’s the thing, thought.  A lot of people choose to hang on to guilt and beat themselves up over past mistakes, myself included.

I don’t know why people do that, again myself included.  If someone you loved, or someone you worked with made a mistake, would you hold it against them for years and years and continually heap abuse on them for making that mistake?  Probably not, yet if you’re like me, you have no problem doing it to yourself over and over again, and it’s just not healthy.  I can be driving down the road minding my own business when something that happened years ago will pop into my head and I’ll start beating myself up for it all over again.  I need to forgive myself and free myself for my past mistakes just like you need to free yourself.

The great thing about life, as the quote says, is that each day is a chance to start all over again.  Leave the past where it belongs, in the past, and leave the guild where it belongs, and that’s in the proverbial trash.  Let go of the guild, let go of the anger and start forgiving and free yourself.
