Disproportionate Guilt



I hate inconveniencing people. For me, there's nothing worse than wasting people's time because of my mistake. Or doing something I perceive as stupid.
I go into what my family calls shame spirals — I dwell on my gaffes to my own detriment.
And you know what? It's psychologically damaging, particularly to my self-esteem. I'm giving my time to a pastime that, if I think about it, is really lame. I could just watch a movie or play badminton.
Consider whether guilt you feel is in line with your situation, or if it's something to be guilty about at all.
It saves a lot of time. Perfect for movie night.
