Why We Feel Guilty;

October 02, 20183 min read


Guilt is an emotional response we have when we do things that are not aligned to the person we see ourselves to be. 

If you steal, you will likely only feel guilty if you do NOT consider yourself a thief. Or if you make fun of someone and feel guilty it is likely because you do NOT identify yourself as a bully.

Essentially, you have acted in a way that doesn’t fit the mold or the definitional standard you have made your identity.
I just very openly discussed a lot of the struggles I have been having the last month with over eating, judgement, body dysmorphia, depression, anxiety, comparison, you name it on my most recent Instagram live video which you can watch HERE or scrolling to the bottom of this blog.
This has been a VERY rough month for me. But I’ve learned so much. It all has served a purpose for me and continues to as I choose to find the lesson in it all and take back control/responsibility.

This morning I set new intentions for the month, identified what my ideal self is like, and began to connect more with my beliefs and understandings of the world around me and what I actually want to live my life by...not what Instagram or any conditioning I’ve had has taught me as ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ or I’ve formulated as ‘should’ or ‘shouldn’t’.
I’m not any more of a good person for eating on my plan just like I’m not a bad person if I don’t. I’m not defined by the food I eat as much as I am defined by the way I live my life. I don’t want to be depressed, anxious, or self-loathing just because my internal constructs tell me I ‘should’ be any other way.
I am a healthy person who loves herself, honors her soul, and nourishes her body with food, movement, and care. I am healthy because I can tune into my body and give myself what I need and want. I am healthy when I look in the mirror and see myself as I really am. I am healthy when I eat what I want without feeling guilty. I am healthy when I spend quality time with people. I am healthy when I recognize my needs. I am healthy when I stay true to my goals.
I am healthy and I am a work in progress. I am healthy because I choose to learn and grow. I am healthy because I see room for improvement and find ways to make it happen. I am healthy because I allow myself to be human; I feel all the emotions, I express myself, I can be rational and irrational, I am curious and opinionated.
I AM ME, I AM CELESTE, and I know my identity is one of love, acceptance, gratitude, and well-being. Therefore, I am doing just fine, I am proud of myself, and I am always BUILDING MORE THAN JUST A BODY. That is my mission in this world, my purpose, & my help others do the same by aligning inner work with physical results.
Taking care of your body comes more naturally when you really truly Love yourself, let’s focus on that first, above all else.
