Finally, I realized, my feeling bad about those things didn't change them. All it did was keep me anchored to a past that is history. If I wanted to change and grow, I had to let go of all of it.
Funny thing is, when I forgave myself, it was like a weight lifted and my life has literally, totally changed. I am free of my stinking thinking, talking down to myself and calling myself names.
The things we say to ourselves are often shameful and unnecessary. All the events, relationships and choices we make in life, lead us to where we are. If we allow those things to teach us something, then there is no reason for regret.
Fantasizing the freedom to let go of shame and embrace happiness.
