I have heard that self-forgiveness is impossible because you cannot be your own judge and be the defendant at the same time. What do you think?

Self-forgiveness does not take place in a court of law, but within the human heart.  We judge our own behavior all the time: Was that the right decision?  Was I overly harsh with my friend?  When people reason that they have broken their own standard, then they can forgive themselves.

For additional information, see Self-Forgiveness.
