Look at yourself, with your broken heart and a pain in your chest that threatens to suffocate you.
Why is it so easy to forgive others for the way they treat you, but not when it comes to forgiving yourself?
You forgave the people around you for the way they made you feel time and time again, but you forget to forgive yourself.
These people have made you believe that you don’t deserve forgiveness, not even from yourself.
What if I told you that it’s not true? What if I told you that you deserve forgiveness as much as every other person out there?
Forgiving others seems like the easiest task ever; you can forgive and forget, but you hold on to your own faults too often.
What happens when you forgive a person who takes advantage of your forgiving nature?
The man you thought to be the love of your life made so many mistakes and made you cry so many times.
You loved him and probably still love him, but you forgot your own worth so you let him treat you like you didn’t deserve an ounce of love.
Is it just another addition to the list of things that you can’t forgive yourself for?
However, you need to forgive yourself for forgetting your own worth. You deserve forgiveness.
Forgive yourself for still loving him.
Even if your heart is still holding on to every memory you shared together, you have to understand that it’s all right.
We can’t just move on from someone and forget everything about them.
Still, the only thing that you really have to do is forgive yourself for still loving him. Time will do what it can to erase the pain he caused.
You have to understand that the love you feel for someone doesn’t just disappear overnight.
Give yourself time to process everything and move on properly.
Forgive yourself for loving him, because it won’t last a lifetime.
Forgive yourself for letting him break your heart.
It’s not like you knew what was going to happen when you realized you had fallen in love with him.
You didn’t know that there were these cruel people out there who thrive on breaking hearts.
Your heart was broken by a man who you would have trusted with your life if needed. It’s his fault for not appreciating you enough.
It’s his fault that your heart was broken. Forgive yourself for letting him break your heart, because he’s the one to blame, not you.
Forgive yourself for every time you let him treat you like you weren’t worthy of love.
Words hold so much power that when someone says something once, we tend to hold on to it.
You forget your own worth because love tends to cloud your judgment.
Love tends to turn us against ourself.
He made you believe that you weren’t worthy of true and unconditional love, because that’s exactly what a manipulator does.
A manipulative and toxic person makes you believe that your worth depends on something that you don’t have power over.
However, believe me when I tell you that it doesn’t.
Forgive yourself for settling for less.
Love changes people and even though you might have said that you would never settle for less, it still happened.
You settled for missed calls and texts that never got a reply. You settled for someone who never made you their priority.
Love does that to someone who would do anything to make their partner happy.
You forgot your worth and you forgot that you deserve much better treatment than that.
You settled for nights crying by yourself and days filled with arguments. Why? Because you didn’t have the strength to leave someone you loved.
It’s normal. It’s human.
Forgive yourself for ever giving him a second chance.
After the first time he made you feel unsafe, you thought that he would change.
After the first time you felt worthless next to him, you just thought that you had imagined it and that it was your fault, not his.
You made yourself believe that it was never his fault, so you ended up giving him more chances than he deserved.
You gave him another chance even when everyone around you begged you not to.
There was something you saw in him that told you he was worth another chance.
You saw a pained soul who had to be going through hardships just as much you were so you ended up giving him chance after chance.
Forgive yourself for ever giving him more chances, because you did what you thought was right at that very time.
Forgive yourself for all the times you wondered whether you were enough.
It was either that you were too much or not enough. It could never be the perfect amount for him.
He would always try and correct something about you. There wasn’t a time when he would fully appreciate who you were as a person.
For that exact reason, you started to believe him and his words. You believed that you weren’t enough for anyone to love.
He made you believe that there was a list of things that you had to change about yourself, but believe me when I tell you that you are perfect just the way you are.
Forgive yourself for thinking that love is enough.
I thought that love was enough too. I thought that I could love the pain away and that my love could fix even the most broken human being.
What I didn’t know, just like you didn’t, is that love simply isn’t enough to keep someone around.
Love isn’t enough to keep a healthy relationship. It needs a lot of work and communication.
A healthy relationship can’t exist without the willingness to put effort into it, by both parties involved.
You can’t love your way into a healthy relationship, unfortunately.
You’re not going to let yourself make the same mistake again.
You will give your heart to someone who will be willing to communicate about issues just as much as he’s willing to love you.
Forgive yourself for not asking for anything in return.
You are a giving person and you don’t know how to be selfish even when a situation calls for it.
Being selfish seems like something very cruel, but obviously, no one around you has an issue with it.
They seem to just take from you without ever giving back.
Forgive yourself for never asking for anything in return because you simply forgot to. You are someone who would rather give their love unconditionally.
Still, you have to learn that love is a two-way street. You are worthy of love, you just have to remember to ask for love in return.
Forgive yourself for letting yourself be vulnerable.
It isn’t that big of a deal. You might feel the urge to shut down your heart completely and build up walls that no one will be able to get through.
You will find yourself in a situation where love isn’t an option at all anymore. Your heart is guarded and you won’t let anyone hurt you again.
What you don’t realize is that there is so much power in vulnerability. How many people are there who never experience love because they’re cowards?
You are a brave and strong woman who let herself feel love and give herself fully, because she knows that she can get through the pain if someone hurts her.
Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of believing that it’s better to build up walls than to be vulnerable.
It’s his fault for making you forget your own worth.
You should never forget your own worth. You should never be the one to willingly let someone treat you like this.
It’s love that has clouded your eyes, as well as the person you loved who made you forget your own worth.
He would ask things of you that you would have never done otherwise.
You always thought of yourself as a person with strong willpower and an even stronger heart to get through any obstacle that was laid in front of you.
You wanted him to be the person to conquer those obstacles together with you.
Instead of that, he was just another obstacle you had to conquer by yourself.
Forgive yourself and be proud of who you are.
Look at everything you have been through in your life. How many times did you believe that you wouldn’t be able to heal?
You overcame everything and you came out stronger. You are a brave woman who can forgive herself.
Forgive yourself for everything that you let hurt you. Forgive yourself for forgetting your own worth.
At the end of the day, it isn’t your fault. You were a victim of someone you believed blindly. You were a victim and you’re not the one to blame.
If you can forgive everyone around you for everything that they did in the past, you can forgive yourself too.
Love can make you forget about your worth, but it can also help you remember it.
Love can make you remember your own worth. It makes you walk away from people who don’t deserve you.
It can show you that you have to fight for yourself and that you have to be strong to walk away.
Love can bring you closer to people who actually appreciate you and who won’t diminish your worth.
You wouldn’t have known your worth any other way than by forgetting it.
You have brought yourself here today, to the point where you know that you deserve the best.
No one can take your worth away from you ever again.
You have learned your lesson. People have shown you that you can live without them if they make you feel unworthy of love.
That is the final truth. You can live without them. That’s exactly why you have to love yourself first and then everyone around you will know to love you too.
You are worthy of appreciation, affection, and pure, unconditional love. All of which you will find one day! I can promise you that!
