What was the additional context that I missed? You said that you refused to feel guilty about anything, not just the guilt that's imparted on you. That doesn't mean I didn't read the rest of the post. There was nothing in your post that suggested a separation between imparted guilt and guilt that stems from one's own actions. I posted to clarify that in my view, there is indeed a difference. I quoted you because it was relative to that idea, that's all.
Either way, they were just general thoughts I have around guilt. I feel people sometimes spend too much time shielding themselves from "negative" emotions rather than looking at the lessons than can be learned from them.
