The Healthy Life-Self-Forgiveness
Self-forgiveness is critical to moving forward by having a positive self-image. Contrary, a negative self-image will ruin your future and potential if you blame and criticize your past mistakes or failures.
Forgiveness can cause peace in any relationship while eliminating hostile feelings. Specifically, self-forgiveness is changing the ego’s attitude from punishing to accepting.
Then, what things impede self-forgiveness?
The things against self-forgiveness are trauma, guilt, regret, and shame.
First, trauma which constantly reminds of wrongdoing, mistakes, and personal limitations, is one of the hindrances to forgiving oneself, causing a pessimistic worldview and low self-esteem.
Secondly, regret is the feeling of bad and sorry about unexpected outcomes, so it plays a role in obstructing forgiving oneself.
Lastly, shame is a bad subjective feeling of self by comparing oneself to others.
