    In The Process

    I am in the process of forgiving myself. I have made a lot of mistakes while pursuing "love and happiness"... I had two toxic relationships one after the other, I put my life on hold for them and they didn't changed their lives or plans for me... now I have to start over again...

    I Didnt Tell Him

    I m 23 years old and have living with the thought that I have a forever STD since I was 16.  I now know I don't, oddly enough. I recently was in a relationship with someone I cared for very much. We moved fast emotionally and fell head over heals. He thought I was perfect...

    Serenity

    Just something I wanted to share.  More for myself than anyone.  Still, maybe something that can help us all at certain times. According to Wikipedia, the prayer is most often attributed to theologian Reinhold Niebuhr.  However, there is some doubt as to the true...

    I Want To Forgive Myself

    We humans, need to learn how to forgive. Not only other people, but mostly ourselves. That's where things get hard. I do believe, that it's easier and less painfull to forgive another human being than yourself. I slept with my best friend a while ago, when we were drunk. That...

    There's nothing more crucial in this life

    than learning to forgive yourself. This act is not merely forgetting, nor is it condoning the mistakes you've made in your life; it's accepting that what has happened has happened, and learning to accept that you can't change them. See them for what they are; embrace the...

    It's Harder to Forgive Myself

    It's strange. I'm very forgiving and understanding with others when they slip up, even with something major. Though I may feel hurt for a little while, I'm inclined to try to understand where they are coming from and see their side and forgive them as quickly as possible...

    So Do I.

    There was a period in my life up to when I was about 13-14 when I didn't have any power to help. What I think is the turning point of my life is when I was about 6-7 years old that I felt so helpless. I was watching my beautiful mother get puchched to the ground by my father and...

    I Will Never Forgive Myself.

    Looking back on my life, everyone ADORED me. I was wicked popular, little kids wanted to be me, and everyone else wanted to know me. I sounds cocky to say but it's how it was. And when I think of how people saw me, it makes sense that they liked me. I was crazy, and outgoing...

    I Wish I Could...

    I would love to be able to forgive myself for my cutting problem. But it's really hard to. I understand that it's in my past, but everytime I look at my scars, it's really hard to believe that I'm mentally and emotionally stable yet. I depended on cutting for almost 3 years...

    I have an urgent need to forgive myself

    for something I did in high school. For years I've been very harsh with myself about this mistake and I've been telling myself that what I did was deplorable and that I don't deserve forgiveness, and even worse, that I don't deserve to find love and freely love who I love...

    Forgivness

    Forgiving myself for things I do is easier than forgiving myself for things I take responsibility for that other people do.This seems to be a major defect in my character.

    Enough Self Loathing Already
