Truthful Tuesday: Forgiving yourself

This week for her truthful Tuesday question, melanie asks:

How easily are you able to forgive yourself? (fill in the scenario that comes to your mind, there is no hidden meaning nor agenda intended).

Not very easily! That is the honest truth. I always beat myself up over every little thing. I am constantly saying unkind things to myself. I try to be mindful, and to watch how often I am unkind to myself, but really?

It’s a constant with me.

I want to change, but its hard. I find the concept of forgiveness towards myself hard to follow.
