The Rope

Untie yourself. Get rid of the knots. Forgive your father. Forgive your mother. Forgive your brothers. Forgive your sisters. Forgive your children. Forgive your lover. Forgive your teachers. Forgive your heroes. Forgive a late ride. Forgive cold food. Forgive working late. Forgive being 5 cents short. Forgive those who have wronged you. Forgive those who will wrong you.

The last knot is always the hardest. It’s also the most important.

Forgive yourself.

And then you are free.

I get life is only what you make of it, and it sounds simple to make it amazing. But that's not true, I am struggling. Dying, breaking, I am young and scared and alone. I am trying to come to terms with the fact I am without parents, without genuine love. And the world is a hard place without that. But it's even harder with the guilt and self blame, and your right. The first step, is to forgive myself. It's so hard.

Years have passed and it seems I'm still asking the same question -- how do I forgive myself?
