Guilt vs Shame – is Guilt a good or bad thing?
Guilt, like pain, can be a good and a bad thing. It is hard to ignore pain and we all know what it feels like. When pain or guilt is upon us we have an urge to correct what is causing it. We may feel guilt when we have done something, or when we have not done something that we should have.
Shame on the other hand is feeling bad about who you are—not a good place to be.
