Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 174 People

    I wouldn't use the word "guilty"

    but I feel lazy when I'm unproductive. I cannot lay around or do nothing when there are things to be done or taken care of. It bugs me. I am loosening up a little as time goes by. Life is too short to worry about a sink full of dishes, a load of laundry or something minor that...

    Ex Catholic

    I'm an ex-sangiuated catholic. I feel my guilt comes from my childhood and my mum's and dad's religious views. I'm spiritual and prefer eastern spirituality. Guilt the gift that always gives lol

    Today has been a really lazy Monday.

    I was depressed all weekend because I wasn't working when I felt like I should be. Now it's Monday and I really should be and I still can't. I got up at 8.30 and did 3 loads of washing and 5 episodes of new girl while playing on my ipad. Then I ate some biscuits. Then I sat at...
