People from differing cultural backgrounds respond differently to life experiences. Some people adopt a sense of guilt for behaviours and experiences, while others remain entirely guilt free. In essence each individual is an individual and so responds differently to the world around them. Hypnotherapy is a proven medium that can help facilitate a change in attitude to these things; feeling guilty about something, while not always good, might sometimes be the moral compass that guides our behaviours, while at other times, feeling guilty is inappropriate and something that should be let go of. The guilt that an abused individual for example, is something that is destructive to them and should be let go, while guilt in an abuser highlights to them the consequences of their actions.
Guilt (emotion) is an emotion that occurs when a person believes that they have violated a moral standard.
