Guilt, don’t let it destroy you. Here is another tidbit from the Tyler Perry book “Higher Is Waiting”.
Guilt can destroy us. We all make mistakes. We’ve all fallen short. At some point, we’ve all disappointed someone, especially ourselves. Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do about it. These events have already happened: they’re in the past. Instead of facing backward, beating yourself up, how are you putting your energy into making sure it doesn’t happen again? How about facing forward? And while you’re at it, how about helping to heal anyone you may have hurt while you were turned in the wrong direction?
If you allow guilt to consume you, it will win. You can’t let guilt take over your thoughts. If you do, you’ll enter into a downward spiral that will keep you looking in the wrong direction.
