Forgiveness for not being perfect during this time of crisis- we don’t know what to do, how could we, it is brand new territory. What is important is learning from this situation so we are better prepared for any other crisis that will come.
Forgiveness for not feeling and being yourself – this is new. We are not sure how to feel.
Forgive yourself for all the judgments, harsh and critical words you have spoken to yourself.
Forgiveness for falling back into old habits – if you have fallen off the wagon, it’s OK. You can start again tomorrow.
Forgiveness for all the anger your feeling- we are constantly being bombarded with fear and negativity. The feelings of anger might come up. It will be a roller coaster ride of emotions for awhile.
Forgiveness for trying to control a situation that is out of your control- it could be a trait you have like me (I’m a control freak) or it could be trying to make yourself feel better. Either way, it’s OK. However, now is the time to let go and accept what is at this moment. Work on only things you can control.
Forgiveness for decisions made in fear – we are all feeling anxious and fearful. Next choice or decision you have to make, ask yourself, is it being made out of love or fear? Be mindful when asking and answering.
Forgive yourself for projecting your fears on to others- you didn’t do it with intention. Try to be mindful of your feelings. Don’t hold them in, release through talking or writing but get it out in a healthy way.
Forgive yourself for not completing goals made before or during the isolation – things have changed, goals will be put aside or shifted. This is OK. Re-evaluate your goals and create new ones.
Forgive yourself for taking time to do nothing because it’s what you needed. Self-care looks different for everyone. Take that nap, that breather, hot bath or whatever you need to feel whole again.
