Thou shalt not feel guilty.
There will be times when you know you have done something wrong. Instead of harbouring feelings of guilt, you have a couple of options:
- Don’t keep doing whatever it is that you have been doing that makes you feel guilty.
- Look at what you are doing in a different way. If it does not harm other people, perhaps you just need to enjoy it. I was talking to a student the other day who, after pushing herself too hard for a long time to be an “excellent” student, finds herself feeling lazy and confused about the kind of person she is. My advice: “Enjoy feeling lazy! Don’t feel guilty about it”. Focusing on enjoyment will naturally restore balance.
