I have made some terrible mistakes in my life and feel crippled by guilt for them. I desperately need guidance to get over these mistakes and create the happy life my wife and children deserve. Please help me.” Mark, London, UK
There is not a human being alive, if they are honest with themselves, who has not had variations of this thought.
No matter what happened in the past that has created this remorse, what you can do is begin again, today. Make amends to those you hurt. Apologize. Ask for their forgiveness and if you are still involved with these behaviors that you think are so odious, then either go for counseling to help you let go or join AA to back up your intention with real hard core inner work (it’s free.) You are ready to move forward, to create a change, now.
Your mind is creating havoc with your life. It’s thrashing you, reminding you of all your perceived misdeeds from the past, and your projected screw-ups into the future that leave you flailing about in the present. The answer is to look at yourself as if your best friend was talking to you.
It is only through facing your “misdeeds” head on that you will be able to detach yourself enough to make changes. You have been holding yourself way too tightly for too long. You still have a drive. Use it to be the man that you really are. The guy that other people like and want to trust.
The ego-mind always wants to be in control. The only real answer is to let go of your control. To realize when you listened inside before, you heard only the squawking of your ego. The problem is you are trusting the wrong part of you. Instead, if you partner with your Inner Guidance and trust that that Still Small Voice speaks the truth, you will be able to pull yourself together to begin again.
One more … You must face that you have been holding on so tightly to your emotions for fear of losing control, that the exact opposite has happened. You have no control. You must learn to share the real you by allowing yourself to break down. You are locked tightly in the prison of your own mind. Without allowing the dam to break, you might break first.
