Is anyone else out there troubled with guilt?
I led a very sinful life full of horrible choices...
and there was no reason for this, I was bright, popular, had a fine home and family to grow up in.
But I left a perfectly fine husband (had an affair
and was too ashamed to stay) then married
another fine man, after two children and adopting
one I left again, this time could not take the
adopted one (country wouldn't allow him to leave
yet) so also left him as a young child (he became
a criminal, probably my fault). I tried to
return a year later but my husband didn't seem
to want that and I was too proud to try hard
enough to achieve it.
I was one of those spoiled by the "woman's lib"
nonsense...but that is no excuse for poor morals
and poor choices. I did not even put much energy
and hard work into career achievements.
Now I have a good enough life but am riddled with guilt.
I meditate, do tapping, and am physically active and healthy but not sure I will ever have peace from my past.
Wendy: Interesting how we can't forgive ourselves... We are often our own worst critic. I would bet there was something in your past that caused your actions, something you ran from and never considered or don't even remember.
