Wronged and lost self confidence

I did something wrong and have been repenting for some time. I promised myself to NEVER do it again and will never ever do it again. However I am not able to sleep or do anything properly.

Every time I go out or talk to anyone my conscience keeps reminding me about my wrong doing and it's killing me. I can't concentrate on anything. I can't tell anyone about it and don't even want to.

I am good person in general and have very good nature. Everyone loves me and I have a wonderful family, friends. But, this wrong doing has taken away all my pleasures in life and I'm so ashamed of myself.

What can I do to get over this feeling?

Guilty feelings
by: Kay

Thank you for contacting Positive Personal Growth. The best thing you can do to help you get over the feelings you have is to stop dwelling on them. You have admitted your mistake. It takes a big person to admit to mistakes, and I applaud you for this, but now you have to stop beating yourself up daily and put it behind you.

Your own thoughts cause your problem, and you are the only one that can solve it, purely by changing the thoughts you have. Don't dwell on the fact that you did a wrong thing, you know this, you hate this fact, but you owe it to yourself to move on. The past has gone, it is over and you have to leave it, and the bad feelings you have, behind you.

OK you did something wrong, but I feel you have learned something as a result. You know in your heart that you are a good person with a kind nature, and that people love you. What can be better than this to focus on?

Move forward with confidence into the future and put all the negative self limiting thoughts you have about yourself where they belong, back in that past with the deed you did and will never repeat.

If bad thoughts come to mind, and no doubt they will until you can control them, instantly change them into how happy you are, and how strong you have become as a result of your past behaviour.

Focus on a happy healthy future filled with love, don't let a past mistake drag you down.

Good luck, I am sure you can do this, you only have to believe it to make it so.
