Probably never. We associate 'forgiveness' with other people. Turning this question to yourself is quite powerful.
'What do you forgive yourself for?'.
Rarely do we think about forgiving ourselves. We place a lot of judgement, guilt and pressure on ourselves and berate ourselves with negative talk about what we haven't done, how we could have done more / better / faster / greater and not letting go of the mistakes we have made.
Forgiving means accepting, letting go and moving on with kindness. When you allow yourself the kindness of forgiveness, you will notice how much lighter you feel. The thing you've been beating yourself up about will no longer be the heavy weight, dragging you down. It will not consume so much of your mind, your thoughts and your energy.
I invite you to think about the thing that has been weighing you down, and start the month by accepting it, and letting it go. Of embracing that bit of freedom.
What are you forgiving yourself for?
