F For Forgiveness- Journey to Forgive Myself

Jackie’s A to Z

Hello Wild Ones💖,

I hope you are well and surviving. Today was really awesome. I was in a really dark place but as the day unfolded I found sunshine and joy.

So I am already really tired of writing about myself. I love myself but my life is not great content. So I will try to mix this up a little.

Sometimes my mind is full of thoughts. Everything runs around in my brain and I think in pictures so you can imagine the flashes in my brain. Now imagine what it’s like if the thoughts are bad. I have a small horror in my brain. Everything in me hurts. The blood in me rushes so much that I want it to stop because every heart beat hurts. It hurts to live. In those times I just want to die. The world is dark but my brain is darker. I am never escaping the world but myself. I just want the sunshine in me to shine again. I just want the wind in my spine to stop. I just want the knife in my heart to stop. I don’t think of thrashing my wrists because I want to die. I just want to find more tangible pain to feel because the pain of the soul exists but how do I tell people that my heart aches? The journey to forgive myself is learning to put the knife down when it hurts so much because it is not my fault everything hurts. Forgiving myself is not fearing myself and what I might do to myself when I am alone. Forgiving myself is accepting that I couldn’t have known that I was hurting because historically love has been served with pain and abuse. There’s a big storm in me but I will learn to dance with the wind because this storm is mine and I can make it beautiful. Forgiving myself is simply accepting and loving myself as I am.

I don’t know what you will gain from my rumble but I want you to know that you are awesome and that you should give yourself more credit for the good you do and allowance to love yourself for your mistakes. You are an awesome human being and I love you for that.
