Not forgiving yourself ends up leaving you tied up in knots like ropes tied around your wrists. Not receiving forgiveness for yourself personally will leave you feeling inadequate and paralyzed. This unwillingness to forgive himself is what led Judas down the path of inescapable regret and pain. We have more in our lives to compare to what happened to Judas than we may at first realize. Judas did not realize that Jesus could forgive even the sins of Judas. Your sins can be forgiven as well, and it requires you to forgive yourself.
