step instructions response
1 As we said in Day 1, there are many forms of injustice.

Do you realize that guilt is one of those forms?

It sinks its claws into us when we begin to believe that we should have stopped something bad that happened.

Can you relate?
2 Sometimes bad things happen to us or those we love, and we somehow think we should have prevented it.

That's where guilt settles in.

If this applies to you, ask yourself honestly, calmly and without pressure: Do you want to get rid of guilt?
3 If applicable, then do this. Start by forgiving yourself for what happened, even if you just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

OR maybe something happened that you think you should have had control over.

OR maybe you feel guilty that you did what you had to do to survive.

OR maybe, like the rest of us, you made a bad decision you think will haunt you forever.

We feel ya. Seriously, we do. That's guilt.

Look in the mirror. What happened happened. It wasn't your fault. Forgive yourself. Start the process of letting it go.

Will you?
4 Remember the clips yesterday from the film, "The Shawshank Redemption"?

Guilt was the main character, Andy's, problem.

He was imprisoned for a murder he didn't commit. The only reason he didn't commit it was because someone else beat him to it. Because he had the intention, he felt guilty and ashamed.

As a first step, let go of the guilt for today. We'll worry about tomorrow....tomorrow.

It’s a journey. Journeys by definition are not usually short or easy. Take all the time you need. Just one day at a time and one step at a time until it's all in the past where it should remain.

How helpful was this step to you on a scale of 1 to 10, with (10) being most helpful?
5 Spend time in the next 24 hours with someone who is kind and nurturing or with someone who makes you laugh.

OR do something that helps you see the beauty all around you.

You deserve to feel happiness!

What will you do?
6 While you're at it, watch the full movie, "The Shawshank Redemption".

You may be able to stream it or check it out of the library.

Will you watch it?
