How often do you feel guilty? Do you think of guilt as a negative emotion?

I don’t think of emotions as negative or positive. They’re all important and have something to tell us. On the other hand, there are pleasant and unpleasant feelings.

I think most people will agree that feeling guilty isn’t fun. But that is not a reason to avoid feeling it! To the contrary. Guilt is sometimes very useful and even necessary. And sometimes it’s counterproductive. Like when you feel guilty because you ate something.

When is guilt helpful? When does it simply make us feel bad but with no upside?And what’s the difference between guilt and shame?

Listen to learn why guilt is so important, why you should not feel guilty about eating, and how to manage unproductive guilty thoughts.
