For many years I lived with guilt that left me angry and stressed. Each day felt like a new battle.
Everywhere I turned, my disappointments continued to stare back at me. I couldn’t get rid of the guilt that was clouding my judgment on new situations, but slowly through my inner beliefs and giving myself time, I began to see that the guilt had nothing to do with me.
I began to understand that a lifetime of my regrets had everything to do with my lack of control over my parents’ decisions. I had never been allowed to make a decision or be given a choice as to which road I went down. Unfortunately, any guilt or regrets we carry, regardless of whose guilt it is, will keep us stuck.
Although it took me many years to understand the concept and deal with the guilt issues, it felt like a release when I eventually let go. Through different perceptions, my outlook began to change and so did my life. I had learned that those regrets never belonged to me.
At that point, I slowly began to work on the changes I needed to make that were holding me back. But for some of us the mind continues to play tricks and though we try to tell ourselves we’re okay, we’re not when we play back the tapes.
Any new decisions I made became a stepping-stone to yet more change and yet more lessons for me to learn. As I continue to evolve and grow spiritually, I rely on my intuition to help me pave the way on my decisions, so that I live with no regrets moving forward.
