And so what, if you made a mistake in the past?
That. One. Mistake!
You own your life. We might not have met, but I know you worry too much. I may not know when it all started. You did it anyway! You took that wrong step. You made that one mistake.
Perhaps you didn’t know it was wrong, at first, or maybe you knew it was wrong but you did it anyways. Could it be that you were pressured into it? And you felt like you didn’t have a choice. Well, maybe you were indulging yourself with something that you’d always wanted to try but never had the opportunity to.
However, you look back now, and you feel sick. You wish it had never happened in the first place. You wish you hadn’t been so stupid. You wish that you had listened to the voice of wisdom. You wish that you had listened to your mother, your friend, your spouse. You wish you had listened. Even to yourself! But you didn’t. You failed your intuitive spirit.
It wasn’t supposed to be like this, eat this much of you up – it wasn’t supposed to go any further than that first try.
Now it hurts. You feel dirty. You feel used. You feel hate. You wonder how God could ever love someone as horrible as you. As dirty as you. As broken as you. Well, hear this today!
Dear Friend, let me tell you something:
That was me. My mistake. My story. My experience.
So you are not alone in this. You have to change your bad attitude and unforgiveness towards yourself. Don’t be too hard on YOU. I actually know better now.
Do you feel that you are truly messed up? Do you think you are? Really?
I tell you again, today, you can recover from that ‘one’ mistake that is eroding your happiness. I believe you have learnt some good lessons of life from that wrong-doing.
The next step is to forgive yourself and move on.
You have to forgive yourself with every fibre in you. Therefore, make the wisest decision today and resolve to live in the present with hope and optimism.
That, I believe is the only healing you need. The only healing I need. The only way to move forward in life. Leaving behind the ugly past mistakes and embracing the present YOU.
To Err is human! Never forget that.
