For many people, feeling guilty is a daily thing. It consumes our way of thinking and it can paralyze us, and get in the way of feeling good about ourselves. It can also control our thinking and be the go-to reaction to many circumstances we encounter in life and in business.
This is a podcast about guilt and other feelings we encounter in our lives. The guest is Nancy Colier a psychotherapist and author of the books, “Inviting a Monkey to Tea: Befriending Your Mind and Discovering Lasting Contentment, among other publications.
Nancy talks about what guilt is and she defines guilt as well as discusses where guilt originates from in our lives. Have we trained our brains to feel guilty? She answers that important question as is there a part of the brain that feels guilty.
We talk about how sometimes we feel guilt and we don not even know it because it has become a major part of our lives.
Why do some people anticipate guilt before it evens happens? And how do shame and guilt live together in our minds?
Nancy walks us through how we can begin to change the patterns of guilt in our lives with actionable tips and skills to begin mastering. Those include an understanding of guilt, self-acceptance, what is impostor syndrome and how we can shape our relationships so we can feel less guilty over time.
