10 Reasons you should forgive yourself.
You will be happier, and others will like you more. When you are consumed with guilt, you are more abrasive with others, and you will drive family and friends away. Proverbs 18:24, “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Forgiving yourself frees you to like yourself. Your attitude towards yourself will improve as well as toward others.
Having guilt, regret and condemnation off our shoulders releases us to be free. Freedom to “be and do” whatever the Lord asks of me puts a smile on my face and my future feels bright and hopeful. I feel good inside and I finally have some contentment in my heart and that makes me a happier person.
