It’s obvious that if we go through life trying to be someone we’re not, we’re never going to find true happiness. If you want to find the path to inner peace, you must identify who you really are and live your life in harmony with that. Otherwise, you’re simply living a lie.

Guilt – what is it? Why do we feel it? Guilt, by definition, is a feeling of unhappiness when you do something wrong, that may upset or hurt another person. It is a feeling we have all had right from being young but as we grow our guilt changes, we feel less guilty about pinching a biscuit from the plate and more guilty about our actions around others.
