Guilt is a terrible feeling, is it not? It can be crippling, it can be torturing, it can have you bashing your head and fists against the bathroom wall as the shower crashes down around you, drowning out the external and keeping you stuck inside your own mind. Thinking. Mulling it over. Feeling guilty.
But is it healthy? Does it serve any practical purpose? I dunno, I mean does feeling guilt make you grow as a person?
My personal opinion is that guilt as it stands is useless, the only way it is beneficial is if you feel the guilt sure, but then put it aside and just accept that what happened, happened and now you must live with the consequences of that, be them large or small. Because letting go of the guilt allows space for healing and personal growth to move in.
What do you think? Is guilt a healthy thing to feel?
