Have you forgiven yourself lately?
Forgiveness is something I encourage my clients from my Birth Trauma coaching to do.
It’s important for my clients who have experienced a traumatic birth to forgive themselves for blaming themselves of what happened. Because it’s not their fault at all. They did everything they could in that moment.
And I also will encourage you to forgive yourself mama. Forgiveness is a powerful tool that changes your life for the better. As a mother, we are too hard on ourselves.
Have you ever felt shame, disappointment, sadness, guilt and not good enough as a mom? Why do you think you’re feeling these emotions? Is it because you’re comparing yourself to others? Your mother or mother in law is tell you what is the right way to parent? Is it society standards of what a good mom is and you think you’re not meeting it?
STOP! Today! In order to move on with a better mindset and emotion. You must forgive yourself. Writing a forgiveness letter to yourself is POWERFUL! It’s therapeutic and it will completely change the way you see and feel about yourself.
You can write a letter of forgiveness to yourself for:
- Being so hard on yourself
- Doubting your ability to mother the right away
- Not thinking you’re good enough
- Bringing negative aspects of your childhood into your life
- Being an angry mom
- Not taking care of yourself
- Watching your marriage crumble
In your letter please feel free to add your own circumstance and your reason why you want to forgive yourself for that. Now, after you sit down in a quiet place, uninterrupted, write your heart out. Forgive yourself for everything that you can think of that’s making you stress as a mother, making you feel like shit and not good enough.
Then, when you are done, write “I’m sorry and I love you”.
This is why moms should practice forgiveness because It’s so freeing, it may not feel good while you’re writing it or after you’re done. But trust me, it’s such a beautiful thing to do. To say “I’m sorry and I forgive you”. So that you can rewrite your OWN motherhood journey in a loving way.
It allows you to start positive changes in your life, it allows you to be in tune with your emotions and it allows you to release all the negative emotions you have been keeping inside.
