Carpet burn and unforgiveness!

The mark beneath my feet
Melted outline, seared and singed fibres,
An enduring reminder.
The moment when my irritation and impatience
Collided clumsily with the ironing board
And hot iron hit the carpet,
With indelible consequences.

A moment when I was reminded of my human falibility, and propensity to make mistakes.  And also of my old emotional patterns of beating myself up, and my unwillingness to forgive myself!  So now on a daily learning curve,  walking over the burn mark, and beginning to accept it and live with it, and myself….!

Any one else out there have difficulty forgiving themselves?
