“Forgive yourself for your faults and your mistakes 

and move on.

Les Brown

Are you struggling to feel better about yourself after you made some mistakes?  You are not alone! We all make mistakes. No one is perfect. There are people in your life who would be humiliated if you knew about some of their mistakes. No one is thrilled to have made poor choices that cause pain for themselves or others. You cannot undo the past; however you can learn from your experiences and make better choices today. In order to feel great about yourself, you need to forgive yourself for your mistakes and move forward.

How Do You Forgive Yourself?


The first step toward forgiveness is to be more willing to forgive. If you are not willing, nothing will change.

Repeat to yourself, “I am willing to forgive myself for my mistakes.”


Once you are ready for the next step, begin to say, “I forgive myself for past mistakes and I set myself free.”

Moving On With Your Life

When you are at peace with yourself for your past mistakes, then you will have achieved the ultimate goal of forgiveness.

“Forgiveness is not a one-time-only event. It is a process.”

Rhonda Britten
