Growing up I carried a lot of guilt for various things and all of the responsibilities that I had while I was in high school.  

One thing that I’ve found helps me cope with guilt and even helps prevent it on occasion is making sure that I’m not dumping things off on others.

Last week before I left for my girls trip, I spent a day cleaning the venue and the morning I left ironing the tablecloths.  We had an event on Friday and I knew that there wouldn’t be time after I got back to town to do everything.

I know that Chris would have gladly done the work while I was gone but I also know myself – by getting everything done in advance I alleviated at least some of the potential for guilt in my life!!!

I know that pretty much every bit of guilt I feel I bring completely on myself but that doesn’t always prevent the guilt!!!

What are your tips for dealing with guilt?

Happy Monday!
