Jeanette, Yes,To forgive someone who has hurt you is a hard pill to swallow. But you must first try to forgive yourself to move on and heal only then we can forgive others.
These are great points. You really do have to learn from mistakes instead of beating yourself up over them. That’s not healthy!
Forgiveness is not easy to give to people, but when you finally do it also feels like you’re setting yourself free from the burden of hate. Apologies aren’t easy to give as well, but you have to learn how to do it.

So true I have a lot of things that I am not proud of but dwelling on it is not going to help me move forward. So I laugh and smile because I would rather enjoy life than be sad.
Ana De-Jesus, What a wonderful concept why dwell on things we cannot change. Moving forward require us to let go of the hurt, people, pain that hold us down and sometime our sense of humor is our only lifesaver.
This is one of the hardest lessons in life. Why is it easier to forgive others than ourselves?!
Rachel, It’s a question that is difficult to answer. Can only say we tend to be harder on ourselves maybe this is why. Once we get passed our harsh judgment of ourselves forgiven becomes easier.

I get too hard on myself when I make mistakes. It’s maybe because I knew I would have done better.

We are our own worst critics, and we tend to beat ourselves up over and over again. Forgiving ourselves is just as important as forgiving others. But it will allow the healing process to begin once we do.
