To live with guilt, daily guilt becomes a pattern. It is dictated by society and conscience.No one can live without mistakes.

For example, expressing too many opinions, making comparisons, or continual bragging. Guilt will not remedy these misunderstandings. Only improved actions have any benefit.

Expecting perfection and making judgments only causes hypocritical behavior. These have at their base, dishonesty.

It leads to a life of self-hatred and hatred of others. This pain that cannot be overcome easily.

Forgiveness of oneself and others comes from a place of love and acceptance.

The minister who lost his son to a High school massacre, decided to forego guilt and, revenge leading to further destruction.

Forgiveness leads to forward-thinking and the ability to move on with life.
