Everyone has, at some point in their life, done something less than virtuous, something evil, or something wrong. There is no escaping that fact. And sometimes getting past your past can be difficult. But if you choose to live in a place where you refuse to forgive yourself, you will miss out on the rest of your life. And that is truly sad. When you find faith in Christ, when you come to the point of knowledge of Him, you will also discover the mercy of Him. When mercy and forgiveness are found and you are able to rid yourself of the guilt that always accompanies evil, then you can begin to make virtuous decisions, decisions for right, or decisions for good.
