Have you ever really blown it?  Made a mistake that you just can’t let go of and the resounding echoes of your failure inhibit your ability to move forward?  Peter had to have been feeling something like that, even in light of the fact that Jesus had risen and appeared to them.  But in this passage, not only does Jesus show up, but he reaches out to Peter to allow him to experience complete forgiveness and restoration.  What are you needing to find both forgiveness and freedom from?  Whom are you needing to forgive?
