This is a hard lesson to learn. If you can learn it then your ahead of the game. I actually think that people who are more sensitive and caring feel more quilt and anxiety than others. People that wear their heart on their sleeve.
You may have made a lot of wrong choices, but you’ve also made a lot of choices that were right. Focus on your good qualities. Focus on your victories. Get off the treadmill of guilt. -Joel Osteen by deeplifequotes, via Flickr
As long as others dictate your life you will always be at the bottom. Break free from others "advice". Am I the only person left in the world who does not give a **** about what others say and think about me? Yes I do care about what actions they take but they can think and say whatever they please.
I hate this when this happens: Guilt trip - emotional blackmail to make you stay in a relationship. You've paid a price. Don't let a guilt trip keep you where you don't want to be. Don't be trapped. DON'T PACK YOUR BAGS AND GO ON THIS TRIP!
