Hi there everyone, I hope you all are doing all right. There are a number of things that we can feel guilty about. This video focuses on 7 different things that we feel guilty about and how they can influence different aspects of our life.
The feeling of guilt can lead to feelings of inadequacy, unwanted anxiety, and perfectionism. This then leads to high levels of stress and overcompensating on every thing you.
Your not alone if you have felt guilty about doing something for yourself. We are allowed to have hobbies, personal interests, and we are allowed to invest our time and energy into them. I have felt this way, your parents, best friends, teachers, co-workers, boss, significant other, family members, etc have all felt this kind of guilt before.
Feeling Guilty for Feeling Happy
At some point, we have felt guilty about something. We feel bad for hurting someone’s feelings, not doing something we should have, and for doing something that makes us happy. Yes feeling guilty about being happy is a real thing.
We feel guilty of being happy for doing things we enjoy because our brains can translate that into being selfish and self-centered. We feel we should be doing something for everyone in our lives and helping them with their problems. Yes this is something we do, but we also need to take time for ourselves.
We need to rest and recharge ourselves. We also need to invest our time and energy doing things that bring us joy. That isn’t being selfish, that’s taking care of ourselves. This video goes into more details.
Not being perfect, asking for help, being successful, saying no when you need to, removing yourself from toxic situations or people, ending toxic relationships, and wanting to be happy are only 7 things we shouldn’t feel guilty about. There are various other things as well. Our self-worth, esteem, and inner peace are very special and important to our well-being. Yes we do want to please and help others, but we also shouldn’t feel guilty or ashamed that we want to take time for ourselves.
I hope this video shined some light on your life. Hopefully you got some clarity and some bettee guidance in your life. Maybe some heavy stress and anxiety just got lifted from your shoulders and mind. Maybe now you can breathe better too.
Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.
