A Tender Moment of Self Forgiveness — Life Change Can Happen
Recently I was talking with a friend and the topic of life change came up. They had experienced a very significant, very impressive, positive life change.
Life Change Can Happen
I know for fact that life change happen. If someone tells you otherwise — tell them that Steven says to “Fuck Off.”
People have told me, more than once that life can’t happen. Those people are wrong.
I also know that it is also life change is not easy. In fact, it can difficult. I am always impressed when people have experienced positive life change.
What Sparked This Change?
I asked the friend mentioned above what sparked the change we were talking about.
They said, and I quote —
“It started with a tender moment of self forgiveness.”
Such beautiful, poignant words. Those words touched my heart and spoke to the core on my being.
I am painfully aware of areas in my life where I need to forgive myself.
As soon as I head those words — “It started with a tender moment of self forgiveness” I knew that I was hearing life giving words.
I also instantly that for many of us who are pursuing life change, forgiving ourselves will be a needed step.
