Relieve your guilt with the Bach Flowers
For those who blame themselves. Even when successful they think that they could have done better, and are never content with their efforts or the results. They are hard-working and suffer much from the faults they attach to themselves. Sometimes if there is any mistake it is due to another, but they will claim responsibility even for that.
Dr. Bach- The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies
Guilt, guilt, and more guilt. Why do I always feel so guilty about leaving the dogs alone when I go out? Sometimes it is hard to enjoy myself thinking of them being cooped up inside. Mind you, if I had been paying more attention while the dogs were playing outside Harry would not have injured his leg in the first place and have to spend most of his time inside. Even when I am sick and don’t have the energy to do anything, I feel guilty about lying in bed. I even apologize to the family and dogs for not being able to get out of bed.
After taking a sip of Pine, the penny has dropped and I have finally freed myself from a life of guilt. Life is so much more enjoyable. My dogs may be cute and cuddly and have big brown eyes, but they cannot tell the time. Harry’s leg is getting better by the day. They are still happy to see me when I return and love me unconditionally. I am not indispensable and everyone else is perfectly capable of helping around the house when I am sick. What a relief not having to look at my watch all the time, and not feeling so guilty about everything. Let’s go party!
