As little children we hold on to many feelings of guilt. Experts are now finding out that deep down feelings of guilt from our youth seem to be holding us back from obtaining our full potential in life. Where do these feelings of guilt come from, and is it possible to confront and release them, allowing us to “move on” so we can better reach our true potential?
Some say guilt is good, since it keeps us on the straight and narrow. In Chapter 5, of my book, It's Not Your Fault - The Guardian Code, I discuss at length all the problems guilt can cause in relationships, in the workplace, at home, and at work. It would really be a hard lesson to find out one day all the amazing things we had the talent to accomplish during our short life, but we held back because we felt some sort of guilt. Being guilt-free is a wonderful thing. It opens up our minds to all the possibilities life offers. Guilt-free people accomplish their life’s dreams. They laugh more. They take life head-on without fear. Fear holds us back from amazing possibilities and it usually starts with some sort of feeling of guilt. How would you feel if you could take away all the guilt you may be feeling right now?
There is a way. When you know “how things work” everything makes better sense. Guilt is an old weapon to “make” people do what you want them to do. It holds individuals down. It causes depression. We live in a time where millions of people depend on some sort of drug to help them mentally get through the day. These drugs are designed to “take the edge off” to dull the senses. I personally feel that in most cases some simple reading and some pondering and understanding of how things work could work miracles in people’s lives.
