It is never too late for you repent
from your unkind actions
and make amends to those
whom you have injured or judged unfairly.
Your mistakes do not condemn you
unless you insist on holding onto them.
Let them go. Stop punishing yourself.
Stop punishing others.
You can change. You can grow.
You can be wiser than you were before.
You can stop being a mouthpiece for fear
and become a spokesperson
for forgiveness and love.
No ship has ever been refused refuge
in the harbor of forgiveness.
No matter what you have said or done,
you can still find the truth and come back on track.
All you need to do is confess your mistakes
and be willing to let them go.
