I feel guilty all the time. I may not be Catholic but I know what it is and I definitely feel it.
I feel guilty for the stupidest things too, it’s never something big. I feel guilty when I do well on a test in school if a friend does worse than me. I feel guilty when I’m driving and I see someone pulled over for speeding. I feel guilty at work if I get through and someone else is still working.
I know that everyone has their quirks and that this is probably just one of mine but it’s hard. I hate feeling guilty all the time, especially when I shouldn’t. I hate feeling like I shouldn’t be happy because someone else isn’t.
I’ve been trying to not let things bother me as much lately and I’ve actually been doing a good job at it but it doesn’t help when people that are my “friends” are questioning things I buy for myself. According to them I have been buying myself too many new clothes. I didn’t even know that keeping track of what other people buy is a thing. Is it?
Thank goodness I have amazing friends like Rebekah that will listen to me vent and tell me that I don’t need to feel guilty and that I don’t need to justify what I buy to anyone.
Guess what people…I’m single. I don’t have kids or a husband to spend my money on, just me and my dog. So yes, I do buy a lot of things for myself because no one else is going to and I’m not going to feel guilty about it anymore.
Do you feel guilty all the time or is it just me?
