5 Relatable Things For People Who Always Feel Guilty

  1. You always say “I’m sorry”

Even when you’re really not that sorry about what you did, you still feel guilty that someone was upset by it

  1. You overthink everything

How the situation could have gone better or how you could’ve done it differently are constant thoughts in your mind

  1. Even if it’s not your fault, you feel bad

You could be completely disconnected to a situation but still feel guilty

  1. You have a constant need to make up for something

Even if you don’t say it out loud, you do little things to try and make up for something you feel guilty about

  1. You’ll think about it for the rest of your life

Seriously, it’ll stick with you forever

      1. I think it’s just because when I do something, I’m dedicated to it. Whether it’s a friendship, relationship, job, etc. So when I feel that I can’t give my 100%, whether it’s my fault or not, I feel bad about it. I’ve never really thought about it but even when I left internships that had a set end date I felt guilty about leaving.

      2. Yes, I can relate to that. I do try and give all I can to something and when someone tears it to pieces or dis-respects it it hurts.
        But I also feel like there’s the insecurity of being wrong.

      3. Hmm I can kind of relate to the insecurity of being wrong. Just in the way that if I thought I said something wrong or misheard something or did something wrong. It makes me feel guilty and anxious for days. But I don’t really hold back when I’m disagreeing and arguing because I like a good debate haha

  1. This is so me! I was actually going to make a post on my blog about how I always feel so guilty and say sorry at least 10 times a day but I wasn’t sure how to put it in words. You were able to. It’s almost scary. πŸ™‚

      1. I know right! Sometimes I think I’m the only person in the who feels guilty then there’s this lovely WordPress community that reassures me I’m human and not alone

  2. Wow! This is me? So what do I do? Some of these points I read and said to myself, these are just Canadian realities! Other ones I felt, I’m only empathetic and sympathetic to people. I care that’s why I’m guilty. Do I want to fix that, when shouldn’t I feel that I shouldn’t care? Great piece.

  3. This is why so many unpleasant people make it to the top, they don’t stop to worry about any damage they may have caused (apart from to themselves of course)

      1. I think you’re right. You’d think with so many of us walking around carrying all this guilt that the load would be lighter! πŸ˜‰
