This image painted by me was created after having a massive dose of the guilts. It got me wondering then about guilt and why is it that we flog ourselves with guilt whenever we do something supposedly wrong? "Guilt is based on having bought into the expectations of others. We believe we must live up to other's expectations and standards" (according to 3 in 1 Concepts, "The Behavioural Barometer's World"). It also relates to the large bowel and the lung energy according to Five Element theory in Kinesiology. The large bowel eliminates what the body no longer needs. Carrying guilt can play havoc with the bowel and issues like constipation can come into play. Now men seem to be as regular as clockwork unlike women, and this got me wondering. Do men not suffer guilt like women? Possibly not to the same extent. Women seem to carry enormous amounts of guilt in their day-to-day lives (I know I do) and get the guilts over just about anything. Are we trying too hard to be like everyone else? Are we trying to meet the perceived expectations of others.............be the perfect partner/wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunty etc etc etc. Take a load off girls, let it go (both physically and emotionally)!! Walk tall, you are who you are!! Enjoy every moment without guilt!!
