I'm Trying To Improve

Every time something good happens to me, I am overwhelmed by feelings of guilt, like I don't deserve the good things. I am trying to stop thinking that way, because it isn't healthy, but it's somehow ingrained in me to feel undeserving.

I think you're correct- when I get something and I see that others go without, it disturbs me and I feel that guilt.

Well, because you are the kind, I'm happy when others are happy. When you get something good, you feel as if you had left out the others, thus the guilt of not deserving, thinking that you are selfish. In truth, you are just too self-less.
