The path is not to try to find, with an eagle eye, all our faults and root them out. The path is to embrace ourselves with the unconditional love of Love; in that process, all that does not serve us will naturally fall away. Today, embrace all the whispers (from our culture, family, selves) that tell us we are flawed with the joyful, forgiving love of Love. Love gives you ability to do this - with gentleness and ease.
Today, whenever a memory from the past arises, especially those tainted with pain or shame, embrace your past self with a blast of overwhelming unconditional love. At this stage, don't analyze, fix, or judge. Just love big. Love itself gives you the ability to do this.
