Hey guys, does anyone have any advice on how they deal with guilt?
I've done a couple of things that I'm not proud of in life, I try to live with high integrity and always try to be kind and compassionate and to do the right thing, in the past I've got it wrong (and in ways that may have been obvious to some people), I spend hours rehashing and thinking about the things I'm not proud of and going over them (like one or two things, but somehow they seem to outweigh everything else and I put pressure on myself to always live my integrity, I know it's not always possible). I tend to do this almost everyday and it typically lasts for hours. I know it's so unhealthy and it's really hurting me to do it but I have no idea how to stop. I think if I feel like I keep going over it then I can find a way out of it and simultaneously I feel like the guilt and the beating myself up shows me that I'm not that person anymore. I know that this is so unhealthy and that I'm addicted to punishing myself but I don't know how to stop.
Has anyone else struggled with this and does anyone have any advice that they'd kindly share please?
