There are times when I become overwhelmed by the past and face a deep regret for mistakes I once made.
Unfortunately, I cannot take back my past.
I cannot right those wrongs once committed.
Today, I know that I must make my amends by choosing to act differently in the present.
Remorse is a reminder of poor decisions I have made, poor choices on my part.
Some of these choices were made with a clear intent in mind and some were absolutely accidental.
Now is the time for me to make a living amends each day and right the wrongs of my past.
If I have harmed someone, I should make every effort to apologize.
If I cannot apologize, I must right my actions in the only way that I can by choosing to behave differently, better, in all of my relationships today.
Remorse is a guide, a moral compass, that helps me to move forward on my spiritual path by reminding me what type of person I want to be today: kind, honest, humble, and responsible in all of my dealings with others.
“Dear God, forgive me my past wrongs and help me to move forward with integrity.”
