I very often feels guilty when i gain something that people don't. I think I also feel guilty when I'm happy. I think it's a bad thing, because those feeling prevent us to achieve a true happiness. But in other hand, we need the feeling since it remind us of other people beside us.

I have felt like that and i still sometimes do! I think my reason was that all good things come to an ending way to soon. Thats how most of my childhood was like, from good to bad, from happy to sad. It was always like: don't get to happy because it isn't going to last. The bubble is gonna burst! I realize today that i deserve to be happy and that all good things don't have to end. If i feel guilty about something good,i will tell myself i deserve something good and i can share this goodness if i want to, and i want to. Take care Sis_syuku.

Yeah, you should do that. We all deserve to be happy. I also don't understand why when I was a child I almost felt the same as you. Now as a grown up I know that I deserve to be happy, but sometime my unconscious tell me otherwise...

When I feel guilty, my heart aches. There is something within me that hurts and it affects my emotion and mood. I think it's not healthy.

It is subjective. In my case it is a bad thing.
