Guilt is a cognitive or an emotional experience that occurs when a person believes or realizes—accurately or not—that he or she has compromised his or her own standards of conduct or has violated a universal moral standard and bears significant responsibility for that violation. Guilt is closely related to remorse.

Guilt is one of the most destructive emotions in which we can get caught. If we have wronged another, or gone against our own truth, then of course we will feel bad. But to let ourselves be overwhelmed with guilt is to invite a migraine. We end up surrounded by nagging clouds of self-doubt and feelings of worthlessness to the point where we cannot see any of the beauty and joy that life is trying to offer us. We all long to be better people--more loving, more aware, more true to ourselves. But when we punish ourselves for our failures by feeling guilty, we can get locked into a cycle of despair and hopelessness that robs us of all clarity about ourselves and the situations we encounter. You are absolutely okay as you are, and it is absolutely natural to go astray from time to time. Just learn from it, move on, and use the lesson not to make the same mistake again.

Realization and Commitment
I realize it's best practice to forgive and forget. Learn the lesson and move on. I realize that holding onto the guilt and or remorse is due to not fully understanding the point of guilt and remorse...and so there's this tendency to want to compound it...pushing on it more and more in an attempt to make sense of one's misfortune. I realize it is self-destructive to burden myself with guilt.
I commit myself to living self-forgiveness. I do this by giving myself permission to let go.
I realize making the decision to live self-forgiveness is to practice the art of letting go.
I realize a forgiving heart is a heart worth having.
When and as I experience guilt or remorse, I study it, I learn from it, I grow and mature in my overall character of integrity, I forgive myself, and I create solutions to prevent repitition of past mistake. I learn my lesson and expand my playing ability as a life participant.
The founder of analytical psychology, Carl Jung offers in his book Psychology and Religion (1938) the famous quote:
Guilt is a cheap substitute for legitimate suffering
What Jung means is that human suffering is a multiple-step process that should end in psychological growth.
