“The rule is: we cannot really forgive ourselves unless we look at the failure in our past and call it by its right name.”
Lewis B. Smedes – Forgive & Forget: Healing the Hurts We Don’t Deserve
Lately, I have been thinking about my past.
I could have changed a lot of my past mistakes but I cannot rewind so all I need to do is actually, forgive my past and just move forward and make the most of my present life. There is nothing I can do but make the most of what I have today – really!
Everyone wants to change a part of their life so I am not alone.
In the past, I let my past control my past life. I fell into depression and was making emotional decisions about everything. It wasn’t good. Recently, since I came back almost 2 years ago, I started thinking. I cannot live this way anymore. Forgive the past and just let it go. Since then, I became a stronger person inside and out. Worked on my self-esteem and I started believing on my self-worth. Boy, did I rebound to a better person 100 ten-folds.
Life is not easy for everyone including me. I take care of myself and no one takes care of me. I cannot destroy my life and waste my life away. Eventually, I stood up after falling down very hard 2 years ago.
Despite the challenges and trials, I still consider myself very blessed.
Thank you God for everything. You never left my side. You were always there.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
