Feb 2016 Theme: Dealing with Guilt

  • Recognise the kind of guilt you have and its purpose.
  • “True” guilt is guilt for an action, decision, or other wrongdoing for which you must take responsibility, and that may have negatively affected other people.
  • Deal with it by taking responsibility, trying to apologise, and trying to make amends or changes.
  • Then forgive yourself and move on.
  • “False” guilt is guilt for something out of your control and is irrational.
  • Identify what you falsely feel guilty about, as well as your feelings.
  • Recognise what you have control over versus what you cannot control. Let go of what you cannot control.
  • Write and / or talk about these feelings causing the “false” guilt.
