“Be yourself” is abused by feeling-good society. It is used as an excuse to be lazy, give in to instant gratification. Forgiveness is important, it is love. But we have to be careful not to confuse sabotaging ourselves. It is hard for me to do, but we must believe in ourselves. We decide to achieve. The responsibility is ours. We own our lives. No one else does.
