Feeling guilty for no reason

Feeling guilty for no reason

In my article overcoming guilt, I explained the reasons that could make someone feel guilty and then i mentioned the ways for dealing with them.

The important point that i didn’t mention there is that you may feel guilty because of your past unfinished business!!

Whatever happens in your past is never forgotten by your subconscious mind but instead it records the events and then tries to find a way get rid of the bad effect of the unwanted ones.

If for some reason you did something in the past that made you feel guilty then this guilt may be carried over in such a way that it appears in different forms throughout your life.

Carried over guilt

Suppose that you treated your mother badly in your past and then she died. In such a case the feelings of guilt won't be forgotten by your mind but it will just become a past unfinished business. This unfinished business will result in making you recall these feelings of guilt whenever you see someone who looks like your mother.

Didn’t you notice how you sometimes have sympathy for people you meet for the first time? One of the reasons for this sympathy is the past unfinished business coming from your past. Be it a mother or a sister that you have treated badly it won’t matter, all what matters is that those feelings will visit you again whenever you see people who look like those figures.

That’s why in my book how to make someone fall in love with you I described how guilt can be used against a person to make him fall in love with you.

All you have to do is act in a way that reminds him of what he did in the past while playing the role of the person he hurt. This guilt is usually confused with love and then the person may find himself falling for you without knowing that guilt was the reason.

What’s the connection?

But why doesn’t your mind recognize that you are trying to help someone else whom you have never hurt?

This happens because your mind thinks that people who look alike are the same and so your mind thinks that helping someone who looks like your mother is similar to helping your mother.

The same goes for love, you can fall in love with someone just because he looks like your old lover or because he looks like someone who gave you lots of support in your past.

This can also happen in another form, if you knew a person who was going through a hard time and that person was your friend then you may find yourself experiencing sympathy when seeing someone who looks like him.

Your guilt can be unconscious

In some cases carried over guilt from certain past situations might backfire without you realizing what's going on. In my previous article always feeling guilty i explained how certain situations can result in the accumulation of guilt in your subconscious mind.

If for example you believe that watching porn is wrong yet you kept doing it then guilt will be accumulated in your subconscious mind especially if you were trying to escape from it or distract yourself.

Now this unconscious guilt can come to the surface anytime in the form of unexplained bad feelings. In other words there is always a reason for guilt but the reason can be buried in your subconscious mind and this is why you sometimes think that you feel guilty for no reason.

How to get over guilt

If you want to get over this carried guilt then you have to understand yourself and your behavior then forgive yourself. By forgiving yourself you are telling your subconscious mind that there is no need to dig after a past unfinished business and that you didn’t mean to do what you did in the past (see always feeling guilty).
