I don't pray very often and when I do, it's usually for strength (or that my unemployment check arrives) but last night was different. I had a bad day yesterday and as I lay in bed to sleep, I found myself thinking of all the things I hated and how angry it made me. I then realized that I was turning into a bitter person (I once worked for a very bitter man for 5 years and swore I wouldn't become like that). I realized that I had to forgive: forgive myself for all the stupid and disappointing things I've done and forgive everyone who'd ever hurt me. That's very easy to say, of course. I prayed that I could somehow learn to forgive. Just how does one forgive, especially oneself.
