The universe is eternally and instantly forgiving. The moment you forgive yourself, you are forgiven. Others may not forgive you, but you can ignore them. Only your own conscience has the power to haunt you. The only people who don’t need to forgive themselves are psychopaths. They don’t need to forgive themselves because they don’t feel guilty. They don’t feel guilty because they don’t feel responsibility. The point is: To live a guilt free life you have to forgive yourself and not worry about what anyone else thinks. Easier said than done. Still.
