Another Life Lesson~~Forgive Yourself~~Susie Austin

I’ve learned that it isn’t always enough to be

forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to

 forgive yourself.

 This is the first step in the healing process. You cannot change the past, but you can live and breathe in the present moment. We sometimes get stuck in the past and we have a tendency to dwell on it and end up living there. Remember a cute but true saying. “We are only as sick as the secrets that we keep.”

Find someone or a support group you trust to confide in. It is amazing how wonderful it feels to be released from the past. Recording your thoughts in a journal is a valuable way of releasing your feelings as well


Believe it is time to make a conscious decision you are going to forgive yourself and you will begin the process of healing.


So why is learning to forgive yourself a lot harder than forgiving others? Hve you noticed this in your life? We treat others much better and we forgive others much faster than we forgive ourselves. 

I encourage everyone today to take a good look at themselves and if there are things you have been burying  and there are things you need to forgive yourself for, do it today! You will feel amazing and the weights off your shoulders and your heart will free you to love yourself again. This is when you are able to move forward in a positive and healthy manner.


Be good to yourself, live your life, and be happy from the inside out!
