Forgiving yourself

It took long for me to learn how to forgive. But it took even longer to learn how to forgive myself… I had to go back to painful places in my life, replay them, feel the feelings I felt then and cry the tears I cried then. But going back there required that I do somethings differently, it required honesty. It required acknowledgement and acceptance. I had to honestly admit that I never saw myself as worthy yet expected others to see me as such. I had to acknowledge that I too have caused others pain and I had to accept that I too was responsible for my pain, which was the most difficult part. I had to say it out loud that I deserve forgiveness and I had to name each act I was forgiving myself for. It took time and it took patience and effort but it was sooo worthy! The day I accepted my apology, the day I forgave myself… I was reacquainted with my true self. For the first time in a very long time, I met her and she is such a pleasure. Her name is Dinkeng
