Here’s another way to think about forgiveness: it's the lighter way to what you need, want, and already deserve: peace. Read these forgiveness affirmations. They'll remind you, guide you towards how you want to feel and live and give and receive. You deserve the life *you* want.
Don’t forget that you’re powerful enough to create the life you want to live. Nobody can take that from you because they can’t take *how* you live from you.
4 Forgiveness Affirmations: For Self & Others
1. I forgive myself for not wanting to forgive.
I don’t need to invite someone over for tea. I don’t need my forgiveness to happen on a personality level right now. I can simply have the desire to forgive. I desire to forgive on a soul level. I am open to forgiveness working its way through me so I can write a new story.
2. I forgive to further my own healing.
Healing isn’t about moving on; it’s about moving in. I don’t need to forgive and then forget, but I can forgive and then move further into the life that I now want to live. I am willing to look at the thing I’m forgiving with more compassion than I received from it. My healing comes from my giving.
3. I am too powerful for anything else to close my heart.
Keeping my heart open is my choice alone. No matter what has happened, love is not to blame. Love is never anything less than loving: it is true to its own name. This sacred truth unravels my compassion. I can release the fear of love and be open once again.
Forgiveness is the decision to devote more energy to loving your own life than to feeding the energy of the initial insult.
4. I move from survival to thriving.
Judgment is survival-based: its narrow-mindedness keeps me small. I choose to build a stronger foundation for a life that allows my spirit to blossom: it’s built on forgiveness. This is the heightened way, my aspiration and pathway to divinity and joy. This is how I walk today. I am willing to be renewed.
