Failure is an epidemic. Do you know why?
It’s not because people are inadequate. It’s because they think they are.
We have some impossible standards that we measure ourselves against. And this has us beating ourselves up, blaming ourselves, and noticing our deficits any chance we get.
I myself felt like a total failure this week. (And I thought my standards were low. But they are insidious, aren’t they? And they are worse when we don’t see them clearly.)
I’m going to practice what I teach this week. And you can all be my witnesses.
“I forgive myself for not being a better writer.” There I said it.
And “I totally and completely forgive myself for being vulnerable this week.”
Whew! There. Now I have to do the practice.
This is a great time of the year to focus on forgiveness. Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth.
It marks the end of winter which was a time where we went inside and healed our past inner self so we can rebirth into the person we want to be.
From my experience, we try so hard to get ourselves better, but we forget the way to healing is compassion and forgiveness. So we stay blocked from peace.
There are two reasons why self-forgiveness is last on our task list:
1. We think we deserve our self-blame.
2. We don’t know how to let go of it.
That’s a whole bunch of ego driving us to continue suffering! It’s time to let go!
How To Forgive and Let Go of Your Past
In this video, I am going to explain why you deserve it and give you practical steps on how to let go.
It’s time for me to release the burden I’ve been carrying.
I deserve a break. You, too. It’s better to do it with a friend, isn’t it? Let’s forgive ourselves together and start the spring a little bit lighter!
Practice this one step and give yourself the gift of relief.
What would it be like when you forgive and let go?
