You can’t change the past no matter how much you beat yourself up. So judging what you’ve done in the past just keeps you STUCK in the past. Rather than wallow in judgment, learn the lesson and make amends. You were not meant to be perfect when you came into this life. Realize that you did the best that you knew how to do at that time given. When you hold yourself hostage to your past, you limit your ability to create your future. Forgiving yourself now and loving yourself just as you are, is the greatest gift you can give yourself.
