How can I let go of my feelings of shame and guilt

Hey! Shame and guilt can be really tough emotions to deal with.When you feel shame or guilt, it can be hard to shake the feeling that you've done something wrong.Shame and guilt can be triggered by a variety of things, such as making a mistake, hurting someone's feelings, or not living up to your own or others' expectations. You may feel like you've let yourself or others down, or that you're not good enough. These feelings can be overwhelming, but it's important to remember that everyone makes mistakes and that you can learn from them.


Find a quiet and comfortable space to sit or lie down. Close your eyes and take three deep breaths. Then, picture a bright light shining down on you, filling you up with warmth and love. Imagine that light pushing away any negative thoughts or feelings of shame or guilt. Take a few more deep breaths and focus on the warmth and love surrounding you.


Everyone makes mistakes, and it's natural to feel ashamed or guilty when you do. It's important to remember that feeling this way doesn't make you a bad person. Instead, use these emotions as an opportunity to reflect on your actions and make amends if necessary. Think about what you can learn from this experience and how you can use it to grow and become a better person.


Say the words: I am human, and I make mistakes. I forgive myself and use this experience to grow and become a better person.
