Last night I watched this video “How to Forgive Yourself (The Secret and The POWER)” by Ralph Smart
This morning I woke up with this thought in my head.
What if you choose not to do better?
People say that part of letting go of the guilt of the past is forgiving yourself. Telling yourself you did the best you could at that moment in your life, that once you knew better you did better. What if you didn’t? What if once you knew better you chose to continue to do what you were doing because it was easier? You decided you didn’t want to change. You wanted to take the easy way out and just keep things the way they were. Then what? Is it now your fault that things happened because you took the easy way out? How do you forgive yourself then?
As a writer, I like to explore these questions of the soul. I would be interested in your thoughts on this topic – forgiveness, guilt, choice, and doing better.
