More on guilt

Never trust guilt, instead act on it. The hardest thing to do is apologise if we do something wrong, but that’s what we should do.

I believe we distinctively know when we’ve done something wrong because we begin to feel bad. Taking responsibility for ourselves and admitting we’re wrong is different to holding on to someone else’s guilt.

In order to act on guilt, we need to be conscious on how we judge ourselves. When we stop making ourselves wrong, we will find it easier to deal with carrying the guilt. We must work on what we truly feel. When we open ourselves up to our emotions, we will begin to feel emotions we’ve probably never felt before.

When we’ve been conditioned to live our life a certain way, the part of us that wants to live a different life shuts off, so that we don’t have to think or feel what we need to feel. Once we begin to feel our emotions we will then know what’s best for us, rather than what we have been conditioned to think.

When we take away all judgments, we will learn to love and relax again. When we begin to deal with our emotions, we’ll learn to stick up for ourselves and will learn to speak out about things, but most of all we will learn to stop carrying other people’s guilt.

We will then create the life we want to live and with those we want to have in our lives. Carrying guilt is soul destroying and counter-productive. Time to take control finally.

  1. I don’t think I have any guilt right now. Others make their own life just fine without me helping, so their guilt isn’t mine, even though they try to make it mine.

    It feels good to not have any guilt about anything and I don’t.

    1. I think it’s a human failing Lisa.

      I am pleased you don’t feel guilty. I agree with Randy on the point he made that guilt doesn’t serve any useful purpose, but if one does carry guilt; it should be used as a means of admitting when we’re wrong and apologising.

  2. Guilt does not service any useful purpose, except for maybe teaching us to admit when we are wrong and apologise for it.
