This is from a consultation. I think it’s somewhat harsh but some people are in jacked up situations and they don’t want to be coddled. They want to know how to untangle the knot and solve the damned problem so that can get their life on track and enjoy it. So what if your problem is that you feel guilty all the time?
“…I realize that last is simplistic but if you are feeling guilty for no reason, that is a sign of inflation. You are making yourself more important than you are. So the quick answer cheat sheet is:
If you did it, fix it.
If you didn’t do it, forget about it.
Note again how the limitation pays off. There are only 2 ways to go. It’s easy to sort…”
I think it is fairly nasty to tell someone they are inflating their importance but no one wants to be guilty of this and if a person can see themselves doing it, they will be super-motivated to stop.
How to stop is provided. The instructions are simple so what happens is your life-long, intractable problem can now be solved, provided you follow the map. But this post is about guilt.
If a person feels guilty all the time, what do you think the root of that might be?
