DAY 259: Forgive Yourself For Not Being Perfect

angry with yourself

For every situation that you are still angry about, YOU AND ONLY YOU are responsible for letting go.

But what happens when you are angry with yourself?

People say that this type of anger is even harder to let go of.

Is it, really?

Let me get into this a little: you are angry with yourself for something you did or for something you did not do, but the truth is that you have the choice to forgive yourself and move on.

Of course, you can choose to continue to be angry, but this will also continue to poison your body and your mind.

Is this what you really want?

What is done is done.

In an article entitled “Forgiveness“, Louise Hay says:

“The reality of true forgiveness lies in setting yourself free from the pain. It’s simply an act of releasing yourself from the negative energy that you’ve chosen to hold on to. […] No matter what your reasons are for having bitter, unforgiving feelings, you can go beyond them. You have a choice. You can choose to stay stuck and resentful, or you can do yourself a favor by willingly forgiving what happened in the past; letting it go; and then moving on to create a joyous, fulfilling life. You have the freedom to make your life anything you want it to be because you have freedom of choice.”

And here’s a forgiveness affirmation from Louise Hay:

I FORGIVE MYSELF FOR NOT BEING PERFECT. I AM LIVING THE VERY BEST WAY I KNOW HOW.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 129: Are You Afraid To Change Your Mind?

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

You have the right to change your mind; to change course half way through; to choose something different whenever what you are experiencing right now does not serve you anymore.

Here’s the thing: if you are not happy with your current situation you have the right and you have the responsibility to find what would bring you to a happier place. Once you know what it is, start moving in that direction.

I changed directions many times in my life and every single change allowed me to grow, to expand and to make even better choices for myself. It wasn’t always easy to decide to head into a new direction because I was taught to finish what I had started. So I struggled with the finishing part, until I realized that I do not have to finish anything that does not feel right anymore.

Why spend another month or another year in order to achieve the completion of something that my heart is not into anymore? Wouldn’t that be lost time? I would not be able to get that precious time back, so I give myself permission to stop mid-way, reconsider my options, discover what it is that I really want and make new choices. I set new goals all the time.

It is true that sometimes you might feel like giving up because you are scared, and if that is the case, then I say: keep going. Don’t let fear stop you. Go after what you desire.

But if the reason you want to stop is because it does not feel right anymore to keep going in the current direction, then stop.

Reconsider.

Re-asses.

Give yourself permission to choose something different.

Don’t look back.

Follow your new dream.

Wholeheartedly.

And do not let anyone tell you what you should be doing.

Choose what is right for you.

In every single moment.

And if it does not feel quite right, choose again. And again. And again.

Love,
