GUILT - The Double Edged Sword (Good and Bad Sides)

A little bit of guilt is a good thing because it makes you a better person. Too much guilt is a bad thing because it makes you a worse person

A LITTLE BIT OF GUILT LOOKS LIKE THIS

Please don't do that again, here is why.

TOO MUCH GUILT LOOKS LIKE THIS

What the hell were you thinking? Are you stupid or something? When are you going to grow up and quit being such a jerk? I can't believe you did that.  I raised you better than that. The next time you do that I am going to punish you so bad you will wish you were dead.

Too much guilt undermined a person's self-worth and makes them feel like they are a bad person. Once a person gets it into their head that they are a bad person they have no choice but to become the terrible person that you told them that they were.


A little bit of  guilt delivered with love, compassion and understanding, nurtures people and helps them build a strong sense of self-worth while too much guilt undermines and destroys self-worth.
