No “guilt trips” please

Guilt is often an emotion we tell youths to use as a guide, a barometer helping them guage right from wrong but what are the negative long term effects? In a civilized, organized society we may say Guilt can keep people in their places…what about the torment, anguish of those who never forgive themselves and carry this guilt? What about the righteous politicians or clergy who feed on this guilt? Guilt can destroy, guilt can serve a positive purpose when Sally puts back that lipstick on the counter, but did she do it out of fear, good values or not being able to live with the guilt? There are so many avenues to travel on these discussions of “guilt”…

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
