"Forgive yourself" makes it to #4 of my top 10 of must do's to enhance confidence and be happier:
"Ten Tips that Build Confidence and Lead to Happiness": http://www.motivationalwhisperers.com/my_profile/blog/852/edit
4. Forgive yourself for mistakes; let go and move on.
Self-forgiveness is essential in order to forgive anyone else. Forgiveness is essential to let go of anger. Letting go of anger is essential to be happier. Especially in "the new normal" this is a no-brainer :).
Easier said than done? Try EFT- tapping to forgive yourself- keeping in mind in order to forgive anyone else- even partially (that's OK- forgiveness of others can be a % )- that complete forgiveness of self must come about first.
Here is my short self-forgiveness EFT script you can follow along with and place your own words-phrases on the blanks. I've left you lot's of space for improvision and feel free to add more! View my short intro EFT video and find a helpful a diagram of the tapping points on EFT web page .
First the Set-up Phrase with Karate chop point or the sore spot massage:
1. Even though that was such a terrible mishap when I______ at the _______, I fully and deeply love and accept myself.
2. Even though everyone saw when I _____________, I fully and deeply love and accept myself.
3. Even though I feel so __________ for having said ______________, I fully and deeply love and accept myself.
Tapping rounds on all of the points of the short version:
1. ___________. :(
3. how could I ______????
4. It's OK
5. It worked out.
7. Forgive myself and let go
Sit back a few deep breaths to clear your mind. Feel better?
This is a simple example and is adaptable to many self forgiveness issues. It's really up to you to have the intention to forgive yourself and move on...
