We talk a lot about forgiveness during these holy days.
Asking God for forgiveness.
Asking those we have hurt for forgiveness.

All too often we forget to talk about the need to forgive ourselves.

For the sin of not taking care of the body God entrusted to us.
And the sin of behaving in a way that was embarrassing or unbecoming.
And the sin for not living up to who we are meant to be.
And the sin…
And…
And…
And…

For all these sins, and many more, we ask ourselves for forgiveness so that we might move forward and towards the very best versions of ourselves.
