One of the biggest stumbling blocks we face when coming to terms with our own stories is a pervasive undercurrent of guilt.  Many of the events in our lives – particularly the difficult ones – come with a lot of self-judgment.  Of the things we could or should have done or said to ensure a different outcome.  Of the words we left unsaid before a loved ones passing.  Of the calls we didn’t make to mend a broken relationship with a friend.  When the guilt is there under the surface, it makes finding and claiming the lesson in our story more difficult.  And we get stuck in a never-ending circle.

Exchange Quotes:

“True guilt is guilt at the obligation one owes to oneself to be oneself.  False guilt is guilt felt at not being what other people feel one ought to be or assume that one is.” R.D. Laing

“Guilt arises out of your past beliefs.  But beliefs are merely acquired ideas.  There is not ultimate truth to a belief.  This simple understanding liberates you of guilt.” - Sen
