Forgive Myself by Dr. Michelle Bengtson


Today I asked Dr. Bengtson to help answer a question about forgiveness.  But first I would like to introduce her.

She knows pain and despair firsthand and combines her professional expertise and personal experience with her faith to address issues surrounding medical and mental disorders, both for those who suffer and for those who care for them.

She blogs regularly on her own site:

Dr. Bengtson’s book “Hope Prevails: Insights from a Doctor’s Personal Journey Through Depression” (Revell publishers, August 16, 2016) is available for purchase now:



Dr. Bengtson will you help answer this following question?

I can’t seem to move on with life. I struggle with my past so much that it blinds me from seeing what is great right in front of me. I’m having a hard time forgiving myself. I hate what I did and how I acted. I don’t deserve to have the wonderful life I have now. A life that is so different from my past. Help – I am so ashamed and it’s been almost twenty years ago.         Anonymous
