Forgiveness for the self is incredibly important. It is a form of looking after yourself in a nurturing way and acknowledging that you are human.
Forgive yourself for not knowing what you didn’t know before you learned it.
At that time in your life, you made a decision based on what only you knew at that time. And that was perfectly right for you.
When we are stuck where we havent forgiven ourselves, we cause suffering and inner turmoil that builds until we choose to release it.
What you know now is completely different. Your values, beliefs and reality may have changed too.
We are forever growing and changing, and when we learn to flow with our experiences we blossom with new wisdom every time, this shapes who we are.
