I’ve found that the hardest thing in my life is self-forgiveness. That’s probably an “ego thing,” the belief that I was and am supposed to be better, wiser, more disciplined and on a flawless path.
I’ve found that it’s SO much easier to forgive others than it is to forgive myself. Again, ego. Is it that the others aren’t to be held to the same rigorous standard that I am held to?
Maybe you feel the same way… and I think it’s time we get over ourselves and realize we’re all part of the same brilliant and flawed experience called Life. The child within us begs to be understood and forgiven.
“Sweet child…you never meant harm. May your faith take you to a higher place of forgiveness and understanding.”
Enjoy the holiday.
