Guilt, a very unhelpful emotion

by admin on January 22, 2011

Some people don’t seem to suffer from guilt. But, I, am the queen of guilt. Just like worrying, it is one very unhelpful emotion that I suffer from badly. The constant voice of guilt gnaws away at my mind, making me waver from my plans and question if I am doing the right thing.

Before we moved to Singapore, I felt more guilty than ever before. Afterall, I was taking away my husband from his family and friends (the whole Singapore thing – my idea – although he’s the one who got the job over there); I was taking away our daughter from her wonderful grandparents and friends; I was leaving my mother behind (I am her only daughter and Miss C is her only grandchild).

BUT I also know you can’t live you life for other people, you have to grab any opportunities that come along. I know this is an opportunity that is too good to miss and I have no regrets!

So any guilt I have been feeling can jolly well get lost!
