Forgiveness Part 2: Integrating Guilt

Version en español

versão em portugues

Following forgiveness series, we are approaching guilt in order to understand how to integrate it in a way we can transform whatever has stopped being useful in our present.

Some of us has learnt to assume the reponsibility for other people well-being, from emotional to material. From this role many guilts emerge thourghtou our lives, since we try to please everyone to ensure harmony wherever we are and if we feel we can’t we blame ourselves for the consequences of our “faults”.

By definition, guilt is the fact of having committed a breach of conduct especially violating law and involving a penalty, but, is everything that happens someone’s fault?, what if we ALL learn to assume our responsibility in every issue and look together for the way of doing the necessary adjustment for the next time we ALL being responsible for the “good” consequence of our acts?

I want to share a personal story. One day, leaving the parking lot of a mall, I crashed into a moving car. The two people at the wheel were walking in reverse and we crashed. When I got out of the car, the very nervous lady began to tell me that it was my fault, I simply told her that we were both driving and that, therefore, it was the responsibility of both of us. By this I mean by taking responsibility, this can happen in different environments and areas in our life, but always through dialogue we can build a better consequence for the next.

Let’s integrate the guilt to channel it as a personal responsibility, in which each of us consciously assume that our acts (or lack thereof, which are also acts) have an impact on everything and everyone around us and construct more assertive consequences from each situation.
