Do you know that difficulties with self-forgiveness are linked with suicide attempts, eating disorders, and alcohol abuse, among other problems. The ability to forgive ourselves for our mistakes, no matter how big or small they may be, is a necessary step towards psychological healing.

I am not one of those people who plan their every move. I just can’t live that way. I prefer going with the flow or rather going with my heart. In doing so, sometimes I make mistakes. Sometimes big ones and sometimes small ones.
