Guilt is a deep emotional experience that you have when you commit an act that goes against your own moral standards of conduct. There are varying levels of guilt that are determined by the circumstances surrounding the action that caused guilt to form. Regardless of the severity of the guilt, feeling guilty, or believing that you are guilty, is not easy to deal with. However, the first step in winning this struggle is to admit to your actions. Take responsibility whether you do it within yourself, or with someone else. Then, take some time to meditate on what you said, or did. Ask yourself: What motivated me to do this? Could I have done anything differently? Is there any way to may this situation better? How can I avoid this from happening again? Finally, think of some positive things you can do, and do them. For instance, help an elderly neighbor, give a homeless person a meal, reward a hardworking employee, call family members that you rarely speak with, or donate to a charity. It’s important to own your actions. Try to take steps to make it better, and endeavor to change your course, by doing positive things. Positivity always helps to erase negativity, but if you don’t do positive things genuinely, you will regress and fall back into to feelings of guilt.
