re: Forgiveness

Good to see a new Cricket in here! Welcome to SAS, Tom!

It's taken me a long time to get to the point where I can forgive myself. I think first you have to get to the point where you actually like yourself and feel that you are worthy of respect and forgiveness. That's a tough thing to achieve if all your life you've been beating up on yourself.

First you have to accept everything about yourself -- the good and the bad. When you can't accept something about yourself, the result is anxiety and sometimes depression.

Nobody loves me but my dog, and I think he might be jivin', too.
