Forgiving ourselves

The Gardens of Ailana

A pilgrimage toward redemption, and forgiveness.

You can recover your innocence.

 Excerpts:

“Guess we all have our moments when we don’t look at reality quite head on. See things through our ‘I’m no good and I can’t do this’ state of mind. We might read it as ‘She hates me,’ or ‘This’ll never work,’ but what we’re really doin’ is givin’ up on ourselves.” …

… “So you’re sayin’ we just make peace with everyone who’s ever screwed us.”

Paulette reached into her own past to tell her, “We make peace with ourselves. They just come along for the ride.”
