You don’t own me, yes I’ve made mistakes but I’ll take the blame but I won’t live in “shame.”
The past has passed and I can’t erase the stain. I can’t do it over again so I’m not playing that game.
Life happens, you make decisions or you do without thinking. Then you wonder why you even bothered because someone or something will try to enslave you to a standard. Whose standard will you meet?
See shame will not let you forget you mistake. Shame will not forgive you. I’d let others know what you are that want believe you because “shame” is like a cloud on a sunny day, it will not allow the sun to show because of it’s position. Same has a position in your life only if you allow it. Same will control you if you let it. But I refuse to let my past failures, mistakes and decisions control my today and future because my faith has removed my shame. And my past has developed me into a better person because I refuse to bow down and be ashamed.
Matthew 14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
