I do a lot of prayer. On a daily basis. I meditate, I pray, I attend a retreat, I talk to my friends, I send out emails, I write about my day to a friend. I’m still learning the nuances of prayer and how to use it to serve others and myself.
I’m a big believer in self-forgiveness, specifically the idea that we can’t do anything to “take the stigma away.” Not doing something (or being someone) just means that we’ve done things that we shouldn’t have done, and that we’ve done things that we’re no longer morally justified in doing.
I think we should just stop and ask ourselves if we are doing the things we should. If we are, then we should be willing to forgive ourselves for not doing those things.
I’m a huge fan of the idea of self-forgiveness. I mean, if you ever need a friend, or maybe a family member, just reach out and ask, and they will most likely understand.
But if you are a person who has done something wrong, should you really be able to just forgive yourself for it? Well, I think that is a good question. If you could, then wouldn’t you need to let go and forgive yourself? I would argue that, as a society, we need to help people understand that we all have to learn to forgive ourselves. I know that sounds self-deprecating, but try it. Just ask.
I think that asking forgiveness is a good thing. A lot of times we just do things that we don’t mean to do and can’t get away with. Like if I do something really terrible I make a pact with God that I will never do that again. However, if I feel like I’ve done something wrong then I try to get over it. I try to look at it in a positive way and try to find a way to make it right.
I have a friend who is a priest. I am pretty sure he is the head of his church and he always tells people to forgive themselves. I think he is the best example I have ever seen of a person who does something he regrets but he tries to do it anyway by seeking forgiveness. In my mind, he is an example of how we should always try to make things right.
One of the other things I noticed with this guy was that he was constantly making a list of all the things he could have done different, and when he found something that he could have done differently, he would immediately write a short prayer to himself to ask for forgiveness. He would go on to live a completely different life than he did before he committed to try to make things right.
The prayer in question is also a good reminder that when we’re trying to help someone, we can’t always be perfect. It can be hard to forgive someone when your head is stuffed full of guilt. Of course, most people never ask for forgiveness for themselves, so if a person does that, then they’re pretty much doomed to live in guilt forever.
In fact, most people don’t even know they have the power to ask for forgiveness. It’s usually something someone else does for them, like when they forgive someone who just hurt them.
