I can live with what I did.
This year, I did several things that have taken their toll on my soul.
What I did was not wrong, and I did them for the right reasons, but I needed to find a way to forgive myself for doing what I did. It has taken months, but I finally stopped tormenting myself for doing something that nobody blamed me for doing.
My friends and family have often said, "I don't need to be punished as there is no greater punishment than when I blame myself."
