"How can I forgive myself? Can I?"

For those many souls who are looking to forgive themselves for some heinous act(s), I have some bad news; it can't be done. The mind-set that seeks self-forgiveness will find that self-forgiveness is an illusion. Self-forgiveness is a vain and tortuous labor that leads one to hop from one sin to the next, ad infinitum. Self-forgiveness will gain us no merits before God.
