Ella Posted June 8, 2006 Share Posted June 8, 2006 So I'm waffling between a quick trip to the bottom of the pit of despair and self-loathing or pulling myself up by the mental bootstraps and stoically facing the repercussions of my irresponsible and selfish actions. I can't decide which way to go, though I know which way I'm instinctually leaning (pit). If my selfish and irresponsible actions are the direct result of my MIs, do I have permission to not hate myself? I know I can't dodge the messy outcome of my screw-ups, nor do I want to, but I'd like to do it with a little dignity and without using my problems as an excuse to inflict verbal abuse on myself. I know this post is very vague, but I'm just not up to discussing the details. I haven't yet reached the place where I can grant myself forgiveness. Any tips on how to accomplish this are welcome.
