Ask yourself, “Knowing what I now know, would I have acted differently?”
Saying to yourself, “I am a bad person” — is toxic and disempowering. It’s devolutionary. The fact that you would now choose differently means you are NOT a bad person – but someone who chose poorly in a given moment – just as we all have.
Give yourself permission to acknowledge your less conscious choice AND make a personal commitment to making more conscious ones going forward."
