To forgive yourself, you have got to start surrendering hope.
Stop wishing for something different.
Different parents, different decisions, a different life.
How many of us are still beating ourselves up over a decision we made a decade ago?
You are not an accident.
Nothing that has ever happened to you was a mistake.
Sure you can make mistakes, but that’s not the same thing.
Your story is being told with every heartbeat.
This is such a great quote.
This is essentially the second part of the thought after identifying the hardest person to forgive.
Who was it who said that forgiveness is giving up all hope of having had a different past?
