I think it is very important to strive for forgiveness within ourselves but this is hypocritical of me. I am no where near ready to forgive my screw ups. I have instead learned to embrace guilt as an integral part of my being. Yes it's a cop out, like lifting your arms up and sinking into the water but I have found comfort in it's constant presence.
What is the impact of external forgiveness on our internal ability to let go of these negative thoughts? Is it important or a part of the process? If so, what do we do to achieve that?
So many questions that I am curious to hear about from others.
Nice thread Lilo
