I Still Ain't Forgave Myself...

Soo here we chose to explore the process of forgiveness, when one is battling himself.  We felt the need to address this topic because we were positive that everyone can relate to the issue. With the pressure of financial stability, social acceptance, and spiritual accountability its a good chance that we all have made some choices that we wish we could change. Those particular choices may have had  long lasting severe effects your life, leaving the consequences painful and stressful.  This emotion can be identified as guilt, which can be toxic to the mental. Some people's conscious speak louder than others, and they keep speaking until the individual is strong enough face himself and make peace.

Rap artists T.I. has admitted that he too has been at war with himself over some decisions that he wasn't proud of. He wrote the song below expressing his immature thinking at a young age. He shares events of crime, resentment and pain. While he's grateful of his perseverance, he blames himself for the death and incarceration of his close friends. Simply carrying the guilt for years, regretting not speaking up when he knew the behavior was detrimental to their future. Jay-z speaks on the same issue on his older track  Regrets, where his message is that one must learn to live with their regrets if they plan to be successful.

Have been you been able to forgive yourself, for the wrong you have done? Nobody is perfect in life, and the conclusion here is to find some option and remedies that will allow one to find peace and forgive themselves. So if you wouldn't mind sharing, maybe your testimony can help someone get over their troubling issues.

Please listen to the first live performance below titled "I Still Ain't Forgave Myself"

Yes is is very important to rid yourself of guilt and worry behind choices you made. Once you look to rectify the situation i believe one should move on. and forget it put it Gods hands..

  3. I struggled with this issue for most of my adult life.. I lost my younger brother to his crack/cocaine addiction... he looked up to me since we were small..I used drugs some time ago, and ALLOWED him to try and experiment. Lucklily through help from family and rehab i was able to recover. He was not soo lucky.. he died 3 years ago after years homelessness.. and only god has given me the strength to continue.. I believe i have made peace with my self through prayer and heavy community contributions but that empty guilty feeling never leaves for good.
