How do you forgive yourself?

My heart and head are not in alignment. My head says forgive myself. My heart says no I don’t deserve it. I play over and over in my head all of the mistakes I’ve made as a mother, a wife, a daughter and friend and find it impossible to forgive myself.

I’m not exactly sure why because I forgive easily others. Sometimes it might take awhile but I eventually do. I still cry when I remember some of the things I’ve said. I know God forgives me, I just need the key to forgiving myself.


I am always learning something new about life. My life is made richer by friends, family, travel, experiences and books.

  1. Good morning Dede,

    Have you read “Self-Compassion” by Dr. Kristin Neff

    “Daring Greatly” and “Rising Strong” by Brene Brown

    I think all 3 would bring you some inner peace.

    Consider this…You were and are doing the best you can.

    Trust your journey.
