If you or someone you love are existing in a state of sadness, these are the many reasons you should practice self-healing.
Forgiveness For Yourself
It is a common habit in a triggered individuals to blame themselves for every negative thing that has happened in their lives. A failed relationship means that we were not good enough, or a job loss means that we could have tried harder.
When you choose to forgive yourself, you can recognize that you tried the best you could at the time. You can stop punishing yourself for not knowing what you know now. Healing can strengthen your relationship with yourself when you stop being your own worst critic. Practicing praise and positive self-talk can change the way it feels to live life in your own shoes.
