Today’s Commercial Break

Sometimes I put myself through my own personal hell. I look at myself and I feel disappointed at the things that I have put myself through. Recently someone was telling me about their trauma and it felt like I was listening to my own story. I remember thinking about how I wish I had someone who had told me that I was headed on the wrong path but then I am one of the stubborn people I know so I probably wouldn’t have listened. Getting a chance to look at my story from an outsider’s perspective made me realize how much I had abandoned myself. It made me really sad and angry then I remembered that I couldn’t have known better. I did what I did with the knowledge I had and that I need to give myself grace and forgive myself.

Mistakes

They always say something about spilt milk

Something about no tears for that leak

But how am I supposed not to weep

When I never got a sip

When I am the reason

For this serious depletion

I should have, could have, would have

It’s already spilt

Let it go

Remember you are learning

Whisper ‘It is not my fault’

‘I didn’t know any better’

And maybe one day you will wake up with less guilt

      Thank you💖💖💖

  2. Certainly, to learning to forgive ourselves!
    Usually I berate myself over my mistakes. Go agonisingly over every aspect and think of how it could have gone better but did. I’m mostly in disbelief too when it is pointed out and all the signs that showed otherwise are visible, can’t believe how I could have been so naive. Like yesterday, I survived a near con (is that a thing?) and I couldn’t believe how I lost my head for that duration. Then I couldn’t stop thinking about it all day.
    I definitely want to give myself a little more grace moving forward.

      I am glad you didn’t get conned. I also always falling into these traps too and to be fair sometimes it’s very easy to believe them. And when get duped, we should give ourselves grace.💖💖💖

    Recognizing and acknowledging a mistake is the start of learning to forgive and figure ourselves deeper. Regret and “what would have been had I done abc different” will always linger somewhere but appreciating it is part of what we can’t change but accept makes it easier to live with and learn from.

      This is so profound Doreen. Thank you for this insight💛💛💛

  5. Mistakes are usually unintentional so I don’t beat myself so hard about them however, they’re those few times I know that I could regret what I’m doing but still go on to do it anyways. It’s wrong and I’m working on myself.

    By the way, your graphics are getting more beautiful day by day. They kinda look like you.

    Did you know that Jackie?

      It’s a good thing you realize it. Keep working on Yourself💖💖💖.

      Thank you have really been working on them. It means a lot to hear you that. Well, Not really. I mostly try to make them black women.
