There is just so much, and I am so hard on myself that forgiveness seems like pie in the sky….but here goes…
I need to forgive myself for being so human. It sounds so random maybe, but it encompasses pretty much all of what I have to forgive myself for.
I forgave, and gave second chances to people who didn’t deserve them, I trusted people and ignored my instincts, I gave all of myself until I didn’t know who I was anymore.
I am human, I have made mistakes, I have dragged my children along my journey with me and for this I need to forgive myself.
I have not been the world’s best mother, and I have not always made the best choices, but I did the best I could with what I had. I was 17, had been kicked out of my mom’s house and had a four month old baby, you know, if I had known better I would have done better.
So, it is my humanity which I need to forgive.
