Notice how no matter what we do to relieve guilt it never fades away? It’s like a never ending cycle. I’ll explain why.
1 Remember, the only way we can feel guilty is to start with making up a rule we think we need to follow and then try to follow it.
Example… Loving mothers stay home when their kids are young.
2 We start feeling deprived.
Example… We need more money to pay the bills.
3 We then break the rule.
Example… We get a job.
4 We begin to feel guilty about breaking the rule.
Example… We think we are hurting our kids in some way.
5 We try to relieve the guilt.
Example… We buy our kids some extra toys to make up for it.
And here we go again…
1 We create another rule to follow to relieve the guilt.
Example… Good mothers who work give their kids anything they want.
2 We feel deprived again.
Example… There is still not enough money to pay all the bills.
3 We then discard the original rule to follow the current rule.
Example… Then we work longer hours to get a promotion or take on an extra job.
And so on…
