I once heard forgiveness to mean, ‘giving up the hope that things turned out differently.’ I firmly believe in forgiveness as it is one of the foundational bricks in building a stable house of unconditional love, with ourselves and others. 

I recently noticed that I had been forgiving others and forgetting to forgive myself. 

So, it is time to forgive, again. I forgive myself because: 

1. I am human and I will mess up. 

2. I am not meant to be perfect. 

3. Sometimes I can be crazy, mean, selfish, rude, inconsiderate, vengeful, resentful and unkind but I am working everyday to be a better person. 

4. Having negative traits doesn’t make me a bad person. 

5. Everyday I am a different person and I want to embrace who I am today. 

6. In forgiving myself, I can forgive others. 

7. Unconditional love begins with me. 

8. Projection and blaming others is stifling. 

9. Internal growth begins with me. 

10. The past has already happened and I can’t do anything but apologize where necessary. 

11. I forgive because now that I know better, I will do better. 

12. I choose to remove anything in the way of my happiness.
