Overcoming Guilt Quotes

Sometimes we can allow feelings of guilt to cloud our perception of ourselves but reading these quotes can help us to overcome negative thoughts and feelings that may occur.  By accepting that we have made a mistake and attempting to do better the next time we can eliminate any feelings of guilt.

“Guilt, like worry, is an emotion that is created by our imaginations following an event, or non-event.  It is a feeling that comes when you feel you have not done something, or you feel you have done something badly – it is what is generated when you feel unsatisfied with your performance.” letsgrow.org

“You know the feeling you get when you experience guilt…Treat the symptoms as a positive warning sign for you to practice removing guilt from your life forever; at this time they are there to help you.” letsgrow.org

“…repeat the following statement 5 times, ‘In(whatever the situation was), I did the best I could do with the time, skills and resources I had available to me and I have learned from this experience, thank you.’” letsgrow.org

“It is important as an adult to own responsibility for one’s behavior, to be able to acknowledge mistakes, to accept criticism or complaints, to be willing to make atonement, to express genuine regret in order to be free to take in love, the pleasure that is possible between true intimates.” Pairs International Inc.

“When we confess our sins to God and ask for his forgiveness, and ask God’s Son, Jesus Christ, to come into our heart and life as personal Lord and Savior, God forgives us fully and loves us totally…false guilt and shame never come from God.”Richard Innes

“I don’t know one mother who doesn’t feel guilty about the times she thinks she has failed her child.  The key is to be able to acknowledge the feeling for what it is and to learn from it.  When you let go of the guilt, you can actually be a better, more relaxed mother.” Gail Kauranen

“Mothers are people with needs too.  When we fulfill those needs, we become more fun and loving mothers – without the guilt.”Tina Games-Evans
