Feeling Guilty

Air Date: 05/02/13 Guilt is often a good thing. The guilt punishes us for acting outside our code of conduct. But a healthy conscience helps us stay within certain moral boundaries.

As they're younger they only feel bad when they get caught doing something wrong and as they mature, they feel bad simply knowing they've done something wrong.

To get through the guilt, you have to forgive yourself and sometimes seek spiritual guidance and talk to loved ones. Hear more suggestions on this week's edition of Relationships.
