This feeling I’m struggling with…
I think we all live with some. At least this is what I’m noticing in myself and those around me.
Parents feel guilty about leaving their children in the care of others. Young professionals feel guilty about leaving work at a reasonable hour.
As an expat, and perhaps others feel the same way, I feel a certain guilt about leaving those close to me and missing holidays and special celebrations. Couples in an inter-cultural relationship may feel guilty about dating outside their religion or cultural heritage.
And this is what I’m struggling with. How to deal with this feeling?
Do you live with guilt? If so, how do you deal with it? Do you give in to those making you feel guilty? Or do you do what you feel is best for you? Please share.
