Guilt and shame

Three possible reasons for guilt and shame:
  • We haven't made amends for something. In this case, we're supposed to feel guilt and shame.
  • We feel sorrow for ourselves because our faults make us less respectable than we like to think we are, or because we fear punishment or injury to our reputation, rather than sorrow for the harm done.
  • We feel inadequate because we have failed to achieve our egos' demands that we beat everyone else at the game of life.
