Three absolutely useless emotions are guilt, shame and blame. And while guilt has some minor redeeming value, shame and blame are absolutely useless.
And then there is the bonus, totally worthless emotion — a lack of forgiveness. This one, actually hurts the one who fails to forgive, much more than the one in need of forgiveness.
Spread the love, practice forgiveness, and try to leave the rest above. The world will guilt, shame and blame you enough when you walk outside your door everyday. Try not to do it to yourself also. Just be the very best person, you can be.
