For most people, guilt is the first sensation that comes up. Guilt is a big shout-out that asks you to listen up, bring awareness to yourself and the situation. It prods you to figure out how you are going to fess up and make this right. Guilt is a great corrector, yet if you use it to hammer at yourself over and over again you will suffer.

Relationships Thrive With Respect Have you ever tried to change your partner, family member or good friend, so you wouldn’t have to feel disappointed, disconnection, loss or frustration? Respect is a heart state that creates the foundation of every good relationship.
