Forgive Yourself Because You Deserve It

Your goal-getter-girl who believes that compassion, empathy and kindness go a long way.

Forgive yourself for wanting to be free

Forgive yourself because you deserve it

Forgive yourself because you deserve it

It's never too late to...

Forgive people even if they don't deserve it

Forgive people even if they have hurt you

Forgive people even if they no longer see you as part of their lives

Forgive people even if they are no longer part of your life

Forgive people even if they did you wrong

Forgive people even if they told you that "Your scars are safe with me." but still cut you out in the open and let you bleed on the inside

Forgive people even if they shut you down without them fully hearing your side

Forgive people even if they don't treat you the way you expect them to treat you

Forgive people even if they aren't sorry for what they did

Forgive people even if they don't understand that it is your nature to forgive


Forgive yourself for wanting what's right for you and what isn't

Forgive yourself for making bad decisions

Forgive yourself for choosing growth over comfort and convenience

Forgive yourself for never looking back

Forgive yourself for expecting people to treat you the same way you treat them

Forgive yourself for hurting other people's feelings

Forgive yourself for being forgiving, trusting, and loving

Forgive yourself for wanting to be free

Forgive yourself because you deserve peace and happiness

Lastly, forgive yourself because you deserve it

Cabanad, I appreciated this poem from the buttom of my heart. It is much better verse than preaching a long prose. Thanks.
