Life has no manual, so we learn as we go. We fall, we learn and we get up. We do our best with what we know and, sometimes, it just isn’t enough. We have all failed at something at one point in our lives and we have all made choices we are not proud of. The secret is not in being perfect and never making mistakes, but it’s in being kind enough to ourselves and accepting our own apologies. We forgive the people we love and so it is only right that we treat ourselves like we treat them. It is also right that we know that above all else, we deserve our own kindness. Learn to forgive yourself because it helps you pick yourself up and go fetch the life that you deserve.
