I forgive myself for any and all past mistakes.

I am free of unreasonable expectations of perfection. My choices have created the wonderful person that I am, and I forgive myself for my past errors.

Like everyone else, I occasionally make mistakes and do or say things I regret. But I quickly forgive myself and vow to do better in the future. I remember all the positive things I have done.

Everyone deserves forgiveness, so I find it easy to forgive others and myself.

I realize that mistakes are a part of life and are actually a good thing. I learn from my mistakes, and they make me a more knowledgeable person.

The most successful people are those who have made the most mistakes.

I embrace my errors and strive to grow because of them.

I have the power to forgive myself for all my past mistakes. I just must let them go.

I am free of doubt, embarrassment, and guilt.

I love myself and am full of confidence.

I know that I am a great person, inside and out.

Today, I forgive myself for any and all past mistakes. And I forgive others for their mistakes. When I forgive others, I get better at forgiving myself.
