This is not just true for us as individuals; it also applies to groups, organisations and societies, too. So I have compiled a list of the ten most common types of guilt that I have encountered. I will describe each kind and give you some examples. This should help you to identify the types of guilt that trouble you, and understand the kinds that other people you know may experience. Please remember that my ten types do not constitute an exhaustive list. If you don’t feel your guilt fits under any of these categories, try creating one or more new labels and write a short description for each.

Shame 10/10 Guilt 10/10 Example 2 Wrongdoing: I lied to Mum in my message. I told her I had to work all weekend. I just couldn’t face driving all the way there – she’s such hard work these days. But I did worry about her and rang her on Sunday for a chat. a) a) I told Jim what I had done but wouldn’t have told anyone else. Shame 7/10 Guilt 2/10 b) Jim said stop worrying, it was only a white lie. But I do think lying is wrong and I could have just told her that I was exhausted. Not going to see her every weekend is not that selfish – I do go often.

I started to do things that ‘should’ have made me feel guilty but didn’t. So then I was back once again to feeling guilty about not feeling guilty! Unsurprisingly for a wannabe saint, I drifted into the helping professions. There, I found that I was certainly not alone with my problem. In fact, I was spending a good deal of my working days trying to persuade others not to feel so guilty.
