Guilt Will Get You Every Time... Unless You Use Bach Flower Essences
You’ve probably heard it said many times: “Women are born with a guilt complex.”
Although we aren’t actually born with it, it seems like we are constantly feeling guilty – sometimes for a real reason, but more often over things we do that are of no consequence, and sometimes over things other people do that we somehow think we should have prevented. Shoot, sometimes we go on a guilt trip over something the dog does!
But then there are those other people… the ones who strive to make you feel guilty, so that no matter what you do, it’s not enough.
You know some of them. They’re the moms who insist that you don’t love them unless you, your spouse, and the kids spend every holiday with them. Never mind that your spouse also has a mom.
They’re the siblings who guilt you into spending every week-end babysitting their kids, even though you haven’t had a get-away yourself in months.
Those people are suffering from a negative Chicory state. The truth is, they feel unloved and unwanted, and they’re trying to feel better by forcing you to give them attention. Of course you’ll never be able to do enough, because they aren’t able to love themselves and they really feel unworthy of your love – no matter how much you give.
You can’t force anyone else to get help, but if you find yourself slipping into this kind of state, treat the condition with the Bach Flower Essence Chicory.
And meanwhile, if you’re the one who is always feeling guilty, the Bach Flower Remedy for you is Pine.
