22 Affirmations for Forgiveness


22 Affirmations for Forgiveness:

Breathe in the good. Breathe out the bad. Take captive any painful or negative thoughts and evict them one by one. They are not welcome in your mind, body, or soul.

Today’s affirmations are a nighttime edition for a reason. Sometimes I find myself in a space where something has been weighing on me that I know I need to leave behind with the day.


I’m finding that forgiveness in particular is more of a practice than a one time act.


So when I find that my heart is heavy, or that my mind is carrying too many things, I try to switch it up to leave the worries of the day behind.


I don’t know who you may need to forgive. It might be a family member, your partner, yourself even, just know that you don’t have to be stuck. It feels that way some times. You can reach out or you can forgive on your own. Most importantly, you can give it to God. How awesome it is that we aren’t in this thing alone.


Renew your mind. Renew your heart. Trust the process. Xoxo -Chels 💋
