How can I learn to forgive myself?

Q: There is a sin that I committed long ago for which I have never fully forgiven myself, even though I’ve confessed it several times to a priest in the sacrament of reconciliation. Even though I know God has forgiven me, how can I learn to forgive myself?

Forgive Until It Hurts

Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him,“I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.” (Matthew 18:21-22)
