Guilt is a delirious emotion. We feel guilty for what we have done, not being able to understand that what we did was what we could do at that moment. Be it unintentionally or intentionally, all our life brought us to that point of deciding, in that particular moment, that that was the thing to do. Be it relatively right or wrong. It is what we could do in that moment. Our choice was final.
We are making choices all the time. All our choices have consequences. And whatever comes is the place we put ourselves into. And we can deal with it, if not, we would not be there. That is life.
And if guilt comes, look back and apologise if you really feel you are to do it; if not, live in peace with your choice. It can always change. We cannot pretend not to affect others with our choices. Or even ourselves. We cannot pretend to satisfy everyone with them. Or even ourselves. That is life.
It is our inner sense of coherence what is the most important for a creature of nature like us. Just try to do no harm, though sometimes it can be unavoidable. We cannot control how others will interprete our actions. Or even how we will do it. We are new every single second of our lives.
Be yourself in freedom.
Thanks for sharing this deeply thought. There is so much waste of energy in guilt and attach us to the past. Your reflection speaks about self responsability and the good will. We are what we are in conscious and in self empowerment. It is beautifully express.
Thank you beauty!!!!
