In line with the celebration of International Women’s Day, Diana Marua has decided to open up and share the phases she has been through and all the challenges encountered.
I Forgive You- Diana Marua opens up
"I also forgive myself"
In a well written post on her Instagram, Ms Marua explained how she has made awful decisions that took her years to come in terms with.
She mentioned that the best way to enjoy life, is by accepting what you have been through and forgiving yourself to avoid holding on the guilt and shame that tags along when something goes wrong.
“To the girl I was then, I Forgive You! We so easily forgive others or ask others for forgiveness, but we forget to forgive ourselves. Instead, we hold on to the guilt and shame; allowing those moments to playback until they fester into insecurities. Perhaps it's just my story... well, let me speak for myself. I have made awful decisions and some took me years to come to terms with. I allowed those decisions to tell me who I was, defining my self-worth" reads part of Ms Marua's post.
She added that at a certain point in life she lowered her standards and accepted anything that came her way hence creating insecurities.
Lowered my standards
“In doing so, I lowered my standards and accepted anything, which created insecurities that were never mine to possess. As time passed, I began to grow through life. I thought because I had accepted everything for what it was, that I had healed. Until one night God got me ALL the way together. As I was having my own quiet time, I began to reflect on my life, the far I've come, all the things I've gone through. As I was reflecting through, I began to breakdown and cry.... more like screamed, I even got breathless. No one could hear me but God. Then in that Still voice, I heard LET IT GO! The disappointments and the guilt. I had prayed and asked God for forgiveness plenty of times in the past, but God was telling me I didn't Truly believe I was Forgiven” wrote Diana Marua.
“I had not forgiven myself. I started to meditate on all of my recent blessings and I came to the realization that if God, the creator of all things can forgive me, surely, the least I can do is to also forgive myself. So I did, I let go and I didn't look back, Ever! God had to get me by myself so I could deal with myself. Sometimes, old things just can't go where you're going. If your story is somewhat like mine, I'm here to tell you, Forgive the old you so you can walk Boldly into the woman God created you to be.#HappyInternationalWomensDay Queen!” reads Diana Marua’s post.
Lately, Ms Marua and her hubby Kevin Bahati have been receiving lots of criticism due to the exit that was witnessed at their studio and their difference with Mr Seed and his family.
