Blowing Out Your Guilt

I read of a New Jersey artist who capitalized on people's need to let go of the past by selling them "guilt kits." Each kit contained ten disposable brown paper bags and a set of instructions which said, "Place bag securely over your mouth, take a deep breath and blow the guilt out. Dispose of bag immediately." Amazingly, about 2,500 kits sold at $2.50 each. But perhaps not so amazing when you think of the guilt many of us carry around.

Of course, guilt serves its purpose. More than once I made a better decision so that I could look myself in the mirror without blushing.


In One Day

In Turin, Italy, an anonymous citizen wrote the tax office enclosing 10,000 Lira in the envelope and explained he had cheated on his
income tax. He said it caused him to lose his appetite. Then he added, "If my appetite doesn't improve I'll send the rest."

It sounds like an easy weight loss program, but I don't think it could work for me. Guilt doesn't keep me from eating. It has kept me awake more than once, however.


Guilt, Is It Healthy, And How Can I Overcome It?

Guilt is a natural human emotion that causes you to scrutinize your actions and feel remorse for the things that you have either purposely or unknowingly caused. Guilt is also a feeling you may encounter when your actions have caused pain or grief to another person.
