Guilt (9 of the Brain)
Guilt speaks of worries, suffering and despair. I’m in the state of deep regret and agonizing fears. Trouble, worries and debts shape my life and give me sleepless nights. The catalyst for this is an existential threat, negligence or financial independence. It’s hard for me to re-orientate myself and to actively rearrange the conditions in which I live. I lapse into rage, suffer outbursts of fury and feel unfairly treated. Accusations and destructive reproaches against myself or others don’t help or change anything about my situation. I decide to end the torture and to counter the suffering with constructive solutions. Recriminations and despair from former days decline. This gives me a new feeling of self-respect and success.
