My dad was always someone who did more for others than he did for himself, and he taught me some principles to live by I’ll carry with me the rest of my life.

I find when we do and say things we might not mean, or we often forget what’s important, life gets a little bit jumbled up.3

Before we know it, we’re a ball of stress, are arguing with people we love, and just generally feeling at odds with ourselves.

To get back in line with your true self, stick by these principles to live by.2

Not only do they serve you well, but also others.

1. Accept

One of the most important principles to live by is to accept what you can’t change.

Accept mistakes you’ve made, circumstances in life that have been painful, and perhaps anything that is holding you back from moving on.

Until you face these things head on, you can never truly move on with your life and be at peace.

2. Forgive

You also need to forgive yourself and others.

Forgive them for things they did or said to you that were hurtful, and forgive them for perhaps not being there at a time you needed them.2

People are human, and we all live in a tangled web called life.2

You can never be sure someone else is fully ready or able to live up to our expectations.

They’re also capable of making mistakes just like the rest of us.

By forgiving them, we’re able to let go of the mistakes they’ve made and embrace forgiveness, which is just as much a gift to us as them.

You also need to forgive yourself.

Forgive yourself for whatever it is you can’t change, forgive yourself for what you’ve done, and forgive yourself for not being perfect.

You’re not supposed to be!
