If God has forgiven you,
don’t worry about anyone else,
just look up and be glad,
and then forgive yourself.
People can be so mean,
reminding you what you’ve done
It doesn’t matter what they think,
God is the only one.
People don’t know everything
although they think they do,
don’t worry about condemning eyes
staring out at you.
When the world condemns you
remember it condemned Him too.
when all He wanted was to save
lost people like me and you.
He really wants to help,
He is the only judge,
He does not preconceive
He does not hold a grudge.
So remember when He’s forgiven you,
don’t worry about anyone else,
just look up, and be glad,
and then forgive yourself.

It's ok to forgive yourself, I repeated it twice, because it's a very important lesson. This is a lesson I've had to learn, and am still learning.
