Feeling guilt?

Guilt won’t likely make you ill as shame does. We humans developed procedures for handling the emotion of guilt:

You acknowledge you did something wrong.

You vow not to repeat the behavior.

You atone for your actions.

You accept the consequences.

Because of this accepted process of expunging guilt, the emotion doesn’t trigger stress.
