one of the hardest parts is realizing how you've treated yourself. you will have no luck forgiving others until you have forgiven yourself. the answer comes not from pushing your beliefs on others and expecting the there result to be the same as yours, but from knowing that you have made it to the point you are and are willing to help others to get there. you are not on the earth to change the world, simply to change yourself. others may change themselves as you do but it is there choice to do so. let them be free. if they ask you how you got there gladly share it with them. you will always feel alone until you accept others for who they are, then in turn they will accept you for who you are. it's kinda backwards from what we were taught growing up.
