Guilt is a wasted emotion
Tuesday, February 23, 2016
I'm taking a break from my WLS blogs because I'm tired and feeling guilty for feeling so selfish.
"Guilt is a wasted emotion" my friend quotes her mother. And it's so true.
If you've done something, or neglected to do something, that you feel guilty about.. try to fix it, or just get past it, and move on! Right?
This could be something as minor as going off a diet or skipping a workout.
In my case, I have a couple of elderly relatives who need help, or want me to visit. Neither lives nearby.
I'm tired, and I just want to go home after work. I already have a long commute. And then I feel guilty for being so selfish. I want to EAT because I feel put out. And I want to eat because I feel bad. Ok, and I really want to just go back to bed because I'm tired and I want to hide from this responsibility that doesn't feel like it should be mine. And of course that thought just makes me feel guilty again for being so selfish.
Well, I gotta do what I gotta do. Time to stop whining.
And time to stop feeling guilty! It's ok to want my spare time to myself.
Do you struggle with guilt over relatively small things? You know, smaller than first degree murder, for example?
