“Guilt comes along as the administrator of self-punishment. Guilt is our refusal to accept a positive outcome because, deep down, we feel we don’t deserve it. But guilt stops the flow. This form of self-sabotage prevents us from using our talents, pursuing our dreams, and prospering, and it exists only in the mind. Stop punishing yourself, and go forth cheerfully and prosper.
Stay away from people who like to blame you and make you feel bad. Most of us have something to be ashamed of. Once we realize the error of our ways, guilt and shame become counterproductive; they have a negative effect, not a positive one. God loves each of us regardless of what we did or did not do. Life goes on, we go on, for we are eternity. Since
God is not punishing us, whey should we?”
Terry Cole-Whittaker, in “Live Your Bliss”
