****Excerpt taken from Soul & Spirit*****
This is sometimes even more important than forgiving your ex. And maybe you don’t feel the need to forgive yourself. If not, that’s great! But if you’re blaming yourself, and doing the whole “coulda, shoulda, woulda” tap dance, you’ve got to let that go. You did the very best you could at the time. Thinking and then rethinking about all the things you “shoulda” done differently is absolutely counter-productive. Stop that. Repeat after me “I forgive myself.” Repeat as often as necessary until you believe it.
