Day 2 - 30 Days of Truth

Day 02 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.

I have to forgive myself for making the life choices that were right for me. This sounds strange, I get that. Forgiveness means that there has been some wrongdoing and choosing what is right shouldn't need forgiving.

However I need to forgive myself for not being there for family and friends. We are scattered across three continents and I can't be there for the good times, weddings, promotions, engagements, weight loss. Nor can I be there for the bad, deaths, cancer scares, teen angst, speeding fines.

I need to forgive myself for the fact that for the most part my contribution to their lives is comments and messages of support on Facebook, text messages, emails, rare letters, skype calls and sending them happy vibes.

It is, as is most of my life, a work in progress.

So, what do you need to forgive yourself for?

(and yes I skipped the official Day 2... Will try and think of something I love about myself today)


  1. Im going to do the official day 2...cause i can't think of a forgiveness thing yet.

    I love that I am accepting of all different types of people. I have never judged a person by their race, religion, sexual orientation, parenting styles etcetcetc. I attribute this to my parents really!! They raised me this way.

    of course when considering another person, these things come into it, but I have never thought someone was better or worse than me because of them....hope that makes sense!

  2. There are so many things to forgive oneself for that if I started, would there ever be an end? Hmm ......
    There is a wee something for you on my blog.
    Big Hugs xoxo
