Carrying guilt on your shoulders can be a heavy burden. Often guilt seeps into our daily activities, causing stress, anxiety, and can even turn into resentment and anger. If you're dealing with feelings of guilt, it can help to unburden yourself by speaking to a 7 Cups online therapist.
How Can Talking with Someone Help?
When you feel guilty, especially if you're embarrassed or feel ashamed, it can be difficult to talk about it. Even opening up to your closest friends and family can be hard, because you don't want them to think differently of you. The problem is, the less you talk about what you're feeling, the harder it can be to move on from them. Talking to someone can help you better understand why you are feeling this way and help you forgive yourself if needed to move on to a healthier sense of self.
But Shouldn't I Feel Guilty?
Sometimes a person thinks they deserve to feel guilt or may even feel guilty for not feeling guilty enough! This is a vicious cycle. Even if the cause is something you feel you shouldn't have done, it doesn't mean you have to hang on to guilt forever. It can impact your emotional well being and increase your level of stress. Talking with someone will help you take some of that burden off and can give you clarity on either how to rectify your actions, or if it's something you shouldn't feel guilty about in the first place, how to let go of the guilt.
