Good for you! I wasted too much time feeling guilty. It can literally make you sick! Learned to brush off the guilt, and make the best of each new day. Thankfully feeling healthy and fit, dealing with issues I have little or no control of and counting my blessings!
Take care and God Bless! Louise (lpptogo)

I know that it is a long road it is even longer and harder when you have negative people around you so just hold your head up and believe in yourself
Thanks so much. A positive attitude goes a long way towards achieving goals. Thanks again

Taking control of my life in a new way......not letting anyone or anything get me down. As humans we all make our own choices, whether good or bad.....it all depends on what we take out of it. Thanks for all the wonderful support.....am not feeling guilty anymore. You guys all rock

You should NEVER feel guilty for another person's choices. Sometimes poarents don't think before they speak.
Reach your right arm around and place you right hand on your left shoulder. Now, take you left hand and put it on your right shoulder. Then squeeze. Think of that as me giving you a HUG. Now, why on Earth would anyone - your mother, or your roommate, or ANYONE - want to make you feel guilty for something someone else did? Sorry, your message bothered me FOR YOU. You are NOT your sister and while I don't know how she ended up, YOU ARE NOT HER. You cannot live your life in the shadow of the negativity about your sister. You ARE YOU and that is not only enough, but that is a pretty special and wonderful person to be.
My one son died - I have NEVER, NEVER, NEVER - said anything like that comment to my other son. When he makes a poor choice, I accept that it is JUST A CHOICE and that a poor choice (whether his or mine or my other son's) is just that - a CHOICE.
I am sorry. I was struck by how positive you spoke of the day before and how deflated you sounded after that comment was made to you. Don't allow anyone to STEAL YOUR JOY or to try or more importantly to succeed in making you feel guilty - what good does that do? Will guilt make you make better choices? Will guilt make you a better person? I don't think so - love yourself enough not to buy into either of their negative comments or implications to you.

Keep your head up, you are on the right track. A new day means a new opportunity to do things differently.
Yesterday I went for a wonderful walk along the beach front, enjoying the wonder nature that God created....and ended up feeling wonderful for the rest of the day. This morning was another thing all together. Overslept, and was not able to walk.......and then I heard it from my flatmate.......he said my mother, didn't want me to end up like my sister......feeling guilty is not the word. I guess I had better put this behind me and continue again from tomorrow.
