“The one excellent thing that can be learned from a lion is that whatever a man intends doing should be done by him with a whole-hearted and strenuous effort.” – Acharya Chanakya, Indian Teacher & Philosopher
Guilt is one of the most dangerous emotions you can ever experience. If you are feeling guilty for whatever reason, you are not alone. Most of us fall prey to this sin. It’s part of being human.
The important thing is to realise that it is unhealthy and you must not let it overwhelm you.
Guilt crushes your self-esteem and puts you down. It should not have any place in your life no matter what.
Whatever you do, be unapologetic. It does not matter much what people think of you. In fact, if you keep worrying about people’s opinion, you shall never be able to live your life.
Let’s say you want to eat non-vegetarian food, then hell yeah, go for it. Eat that chicken whole-heartedly, but if you are not able to do that without feeling guilty, do not even think about it.
It is not about doing or not doing something. It is about doing whatever you want to do without any guilt. Either do something wholeheartedly or don’t do it at all.
