How to Forgive Yourself

We all do things in our lives that we regret, and then we hold on to shame and guilt. The process to forgive yourself is the same:

  • Separate the action from yourself.
  • Understand your motivation. Was it insecurity or ignorance that drove you to do this thing?
  • Empathize with yourself. How much stuff do you blame yourself for that was not your fault?
  • Mark your boundaries. 
  • Eliminate emotional attachment. There are better things to do with your energy than hating yourself.
