When we begin to forgive ourselves is when life can start again :)

**Here are some lyrics by Linkin Park that mimic how I feel right now trying to live sober, and deal with all my mistakes**

In this farewell
There’s no blood
There’s no Alibi
‘Cause I’ve Drawn Regret
For the Truth

So let Mercy Come
And Wash Away
What I’ve Done

I’ve Faced myself
To Cross out what I’ve Become
Erase Myself
And LET GO of What I’ve done

And whatever PAIN may come
Today this ends
I’m FORGIVING What I’ve Done!!!
Forgiving What I’ve Done...

**Hope ya liked the lyrics :) I'm really trying to forgive myself and, move foward with my life**

It took me awhile to forgive myself. Once we clean up and our mind comes back, we can see what we did to ourselves with our drug use and it can be hard to deal with and causes relapses for many. Just remember that time heals, it's baby steps at first.

I like this song too. Heard it so many times.

Yeah it def takes time, and the guilt was always my main excuse to relapse until I realized how much worse i was making it every time I relapsed.  I'm ready to makethings right with the people I love and who I may have hurt.  I'm ready to stop beating myself up over it every second of the day also.  I know in time I will forgive myself just as my loved ones have.
