Guilt is a hazardous substance, and you must handle it with care.

Nearly everyone has been exposed to the debilitating effects of guilt. People often attempt to use it to motivate others to change in a positive direction.  Unfortunately, guilt rarely transforms lives in a positive direction, and usually it has the opposite effect.

Guilty people suffer from low self-esteem, and guilt places them in a non-resourceful state.  There’s a great risk that the debilitating effects of guilt will make positive change more difficult.  Guilt is relatively ineffective as a motivator for positive change.  It falls more into the realm of punishment you deal out to others or to yourself.

When you repeatedly apply guilt to an individual, he quickly becomes immune to its application.  Each new dose of guilt is less effective in moving behavior in the desired direction.

Guilt has a tendency to immobilize people into a state of inertia.  They tend to wallow in it and spend time punishing themselves for their mistakes rather than correcting them.
