WOMAN, THY NAME IS…GUILT

WOMAN THY NAME IS GUILT/ FEELING GUILTYWOMAN THY NAME IS ….. GUILT

If Guilt was an Olympic sport I would be a Gold Medalist several times over. Seriously, feeling guilty is my SuperPower – am I alone??

Today, so far I have felt guilty for saying no to something – saying yes to something and for not saying anything at all to something else.

I have felt guilty about eating something (chocolate for breakfast) and about not eating something (smoothie for breakfast which I not only didn’t drink but I also didn’t shop for or make.)

Today so far, I have also felt guilty about not talking enough time for myself (self-care, by the way, it’s new and everyone is doing it!) and for talking too much time for myself.

I have felt guilty about not going to the gym, again, (that’s three years on the trot now 😂) and about wanting to go to the gym and being vain enough to dream about a summer body all toned and golden…it’s so very superficial I should rise above it. #justanotherreasontofeelguilty

In my life I have managed to feel guilty about things that I have absolutely no involvement in whatsoever. I can spend endless hours in bed feeling guilty – Am I feeding my kids enough kale? Why don’t I know what kale is? Are the Icebergs melting? Is it my fault? What about sheep in the fields – are they ever too hot or too cold? Do they dream of a house? Should I be doing something to help sheep get houses?

I spend approximately 78% of my entire life feeling guilty about stuff and telling myself off for feeling guilty about stuff and then trying to find a mental balance between what I should feel guilty about and what I shouldn’t.

It’s like a full time job.

It’s exhausting.

If anyone has any advice on how to get rid of this joy-thief known as guilt, I would really appreciate it!
