GUILT - HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE - HANDLE WITH CARE
Guilt is a hazardous substance,
and I must handle it with care. A burden of guilt lowers my
self-esteem and makes it harder to be a positive person. Guilt
falls more into the realm of punishment, and its debilitating
effects make positive change more difficult.
Guilt has the wrong focus. It
focuses on my weaknesses, failures, and undesirable behavior.
What I focus on expands first into my mind and then into my
life. When I feel guilty, I focus on what is wrong. This
negative focus predisposes me to the repetition of undesirable
behavior. Guilt is a non-resourceful state. My best
opportunity for creating positive change is when I am in an
empowered state. It doesnít make sense to load myself up with
guilt, and then expect my behavior to magically improve.
I donít punish other people
with guilt, and I donít punish myself with it either. I donít
put it in my travel bags; lugging around guilt is a waste of
energy that I could use to make the world a better place. If I
have a problem, I solve it. I donít waste my time feeling
guilty about it; I get on with my life and move in the direction
of my dreams.
