Today’s prompt is to forgive yourself for a past transgression, we all hold onto negative experiences that we wish we could change but this doesn’t serve us any good and allows self-doubt to creep in.
There have been moments in my past that I wish I could change but the moment I plan to forgive myself today for is something that has held be back for years.
I left school in the middle of year 12 after I struggled to meet attendance requirements as I had previously had a kidney transplant and required a lot of time off for appointments. The decision to leave school has haunted me for the longest time and I often equated my failed opportunities on the basis that I was not competent enough because I never received a year 12 diploma.
I sit here writing this whilst I am currently working studying for my marketing exam in my MBA course, I have been competent enough to be accepted into an amazing University and can now say without any doubt what so ever that leaving school early was not because I was not capable and I am no less intelligent than my classmates that did graduate.
I forgive myself for the choices I made in my past, they were the right option for me at the time and if I never made those choices I would not be the person I am today.
Now that I have completed today’s prompt it is time for me to stop procrastinating and get back to studying!
