A list of things to forgive yourself for


It's important to note that forgiving yourself doesn't mean you're excusing or dismissing what you did, it's aboutmaking peace with your past and with yourself. As well it is important to take actions to learn from your past, try to make amends or find ways to prevent repeating the same mistakes.

    1. Not being brave enough

    Sometimes we miss out on opportunities. A job, a business opportunity, a relationship. We're too scared to take a risk, fear rejection or to go outside our comfort zone. Forgive yourself for not being fearless all the time, is ok to be scared sometimes.

    2. Failing to live up to other people's expectations

    It's easy to fall into the trap of trying to please everyone, but it's important to remember that you are your own person. A parent, a sibling, a spouse, a child. There are so many hats to wearand sometimes, one might fall off.

    3. Not being perfect

    Nobody is perfect, and that's a good thing. Perfection is boring, unattainable and predictable. It's important to remember that it's the imperfections that make us unique and interesting.

    4. Being too hard on yourself

    We can all be our own worst critic, but it's important to remember that you are doing your best and to be kinder to yourself.

    5. Holding onto resentment

    Carrying around negative emotions destroy you, and it's important to forgive yourself and others for past mistakes and let go of any ill feelings you may have. Nothing good ever comes from holding onto resentment.

    6. Not being grateful enough

    It can be easy to take things for granted, and it's important to forgive yourself for not being grateful for the things you have in your life.

    7. Not being there when someone needed you

    Sometimes we let our own problems get in the way of being there for others. We know we should but we're tired, or busy or just cant be bothered. Forgive yourself for not being able to be there every single time.

    8. Not standing up for yourself

    It can be hard to speak up for yourself, and it's important to forgive yourself for the times you haven't.

    9. Not following your dreams

    We all have regrets about the things we didn't do, and feel guilty because we are not following our passion. But it's important to remember that it's never too late to start chasing your dreams.

    10. For losing control at times

    We all want to be in control of our lives, but sometimes things happen that are out of our control. Forgive yourself for not being able to control everything.

    11. For not achieving your goals

    Not achieving your goals: It's natural to have goals and aspirations, but sometimes things don't work out as planned. Forgive yourself for not always achieving your goals

    12. For hurting others

    We all make mistakes and have moments where we hurt others, whether intentionally or not. Forgive yourself for any hurt you may have caused
