Steer clear of shame, pity and guilt

  • By Alan Knott-Craig

Shame. Pity. Guilt.

These are bad motivators. Nothing good can come of actions driven by shame, pity or guilt.

Stick to the good stuff: pride, empathy, gratitude.

Instead of helping homeless people because you feel guilty you have a home, help them because you feel grateful you’re not homeless.

It’s the same result, but a positive emotion drives it (gratitude), not negative one (guilt).

Shame, pity and guilt are poisonous.

Steer clear.
