I want to forgive myself.

I want to forgive myself for not always reaching for the stars, for being fragile, for unnecessary guilt, for blaming myself for my misery, for striving for unattainable perfection, for turning against myself, for closing my heart to myself and to others, for rehashing hurtful accusations others made against me, for trying to anticipate everything, for hating myself sometimes
In short, I want to forgive myself, for I am human, I am not perfect. And through my mistakes is how I learn, and through forgiveness I will learn to love myself.
