Guilt

There is a gain to everything we choose to do, even when we chose to keep guilt. Its like is it way to keep ourselves in check and to motivate ourselves; a way to self punish to "pay the price".

The above is a reflection for each morning. [Give this exercise at least 21 days before looking for something more effective for you-we are all different.]
