No one likes living in fear or thinking about worst case scenarios, however, once we get into that headspace, it’s very hard to shift out of it.
Last week we chatted about forgiving others to reduce stress and today we are going to shift the focus of forgiveness onto ourselves. Here are 5 reasons why forgiving yourself will shift your life for the better.
