Admitting our guilt

18 May 2017

There would be no need for us to feel guilty, unless of course we’ve got something to feel guilty about and if we’ve got something to feel guilty about, then perhaps we should deal with it.

For those of us who carry guilt or choose to live in denial over that guilt, perhaps it’s time for us to do some soul searching and deal with our guilt. Perhaps we think that not being in a good head space somehow cancels out that guilt.

No matter how much of a bad head space we’re in or what we have to deal with, there is no excuse for ignoring what’s been asked of us, or doing things that the universe would never decree or agree to. If someone asks for help, no matter what that help is or what we’re dealing with, it’s not someone else’s problem and yet we make it so.

It’s always important we recognise our own actions, what we’ve done, or what we haven’t done, instead of making it someone else’s problem to deal with. The person we have wronged will know, the universe will also know. It’s not something we avoid, our conscious always knows.

It doesn’t make what we’ve done right, just because we choose to live in denial or decide to live in ignorance. It may see or feel easier, but in the longer term, these things never are, particularly as we’re dealing with our conscience.

    At the end of the day we are responsible for our actions and the universe has a habit of ensuring that they come back to bite us.

    The lesson is for us to own up to those actions and learn from them, so we become better people.

    Thank you. Yes, you’re right we are responsible for our actions, but not everyone will accept that.

    My experiences continue to show that. The sad reality though, is that more of us would connect better if we did take responsibility for ourselves and our actions.

    Not everyone is interested in their own lessons, but would be quick to pass the buck, to point out someone else’s flaws.
