“The Journey isn’t about becoming another person, but loving who you are right now.” ~Suzanne Heyn
We spend so much time and energy trying (unsuccessfully) to become someone else—some version of ourselves that we imagine to be “better”—when what we really need to be doing is learning to love ourselves just as we are.
“Forgive yourself for not knowing what you didn’t know before you lived through it. Honor your path. Trust your journey. Learn, grow, evolve, become.” ~Creig Crippen
It does no good to beat ourselves up for not knowing in the past what we know now with our greater life experience. How much more fruitful it is to forgive yourself and move on into learning and growing with your new knowledge.
