How to Stop Feeling Guilty

The Power of Guilt

Feeling guilty or regretting something that happened in your past is not the best thing for your mind. Feelings of guilt/regret can fester and grow over time, sometimes until they consume you entirely. It is important to deal with any issues from your past before they hinder your future. Forgiving someone who did you wrong and/or forgiving yourself are challenging things to do. Similarly to emotions like hate, jealousy, or envy, you should not wallow in guilt for extended periods. While feeling sorry for yourself is not entirely bad, it is not something you want to make a habit of because it will affect your self-esteem.

Learning from Your Mistakes

Guilt is an emotion we all feel on occasion, but it is not something you should beat yourself up over. As long as you learn from your mistakes, there is no reason why you cannot grow and strive for greatness.

Learning from your mistakes is something you must do if you want to create a bright future for yourself and the people you love. Everyone slips up, but we identify whatever issue it was that tripped us up so we can grow from it. Just because you were a certain way in the past, it does not mean you will be that way forever. Rather than dwell on any hiccups, start focussing on how you can make things better.

What is the Cost of Guilt?

One of the biggest dangers of having too much guilt is fear, fear of making/repeating a mistake. Sometimes, this fear can stop you from living life, forcing you to retreat into a shell. If you let fear consume you, your opportunity for growth will dwindle, along with any hopes for the future you have.

5 Ways to Get Rid of Guilt

1. Acknowledge Your Feelings

The first step to getting rid of guilt is to acknowledge your feelings. Do not bottle up your emotions or pretend they do not exist. Recognizing why you feel guilty is important if you want to deal with this emotion in a healthy way.

2. Understand Why You Feel Guilty

Once you have acknowledged your guilt, start exploring why you might feel this way. Only by understanding the root cause of your guilt can you hope to overcome it.

3. Accept That You Cannot Change the Past

One of the main reasons people feel guilty is because they believe they could have done something differently. If you find yourself dwelling on what you could have done, remind yourself that you cannot change the past. Accepting the past can greatly relieve you and help you move on from your guilt.

4. Forgive Yourself

If you are struggling to accept that you cannot change the past, it might help if you forgive yourself. Forgiving yourself does not mean that what you did was okay, but you can let go of the guilt and focus on the present. Forgiving yourself can be difficult, but it is often necessary if you want to move on.

5. Move On

Once you have acknowledged your feelings, understood why you feel guilty, and forgiven yourself, you can move on. Moving on does not mean that you forget what happened or pretend it never occurred—instead, it means that you are ready to focus on the future and leave your guilt behind.

The Power of Positive Thinking

A healthy mind can deal with negative and positive feelings, after all, life is about balance. Knowing when to embrace a particular emotion is vital if you want to be the best version of yourself. To become a well-balanced individual, you should not ignore the negative feelings that creep into your heart, instead, embrace them. Understand that if used correctly, these emotions can help you become stronger, wiser, and more dependable. Whenever you experience something like hate, jealousy, guilt, or fear, figure out what your mind is trying to tell you.

There will be times when you feel down because nothing seems to be heading your way. During these trying times, remember that a healthy mind does not try to escape from negative emotions, instead, it tries to understand them. Embrace the fact that you are feeling this way and use it as motivation to better yourself.

It is okay to feel sad, scared, or angry, but do not let these emotions take control of your life. A healthy mind knows how to deal with these emotions constructively. The next time you feel down, do not wallow in self-pity, use that energy to do something positive.
