Dealing Appropriately with Guilt

Dealing Appropriately with Guilt

When you're trying to work through guilt, here's what you need to do:

  • Distinguish between action and self;
  • Accept responsibility;
  • Make amends - apologize and make reparations;
  • Take a problem - solving approach - look for solutions;
  • Make better choices - When you do something that you can't accept, you may find that this event becomes a catalyst for greater change. Maybe you want to become a better person or start down a new path in life.

The difference between shame and guilt may seem superficial, but it's crucial to understand it, so you can learn to handle your emotions better.

Shame can be more troubling than guilt. It's hard for some people to separate their actions from who they are as a person. The downsides of shame:

  • Guilt is defined as an emotional state that appears when we feel we have failed to live up to the morals of ourselves or others.
  • Shame is defined as an intense feeling about the self that comes from failing to live up to your own or others' standards.
