The Memory Hack

por Jerome Princy (2019-09-12)

Research continues on minimizing The Memory Hack Review the risk of developing dementia disease. In the meantime, know that there's a whole lot you can do to keep body and mind healthy as you age. But you'd better start today. Guilt issues occupy a great deal of our time, some of us have grown up with guilt as the motivating factor in almost every choice or decision we have ever made. We have guilt-trips, guilt inducing foods, guilty verdicts, social guilt, religious guilt, moral guilt and the list goes on. A healthy dose of guilt is good for us according to some; it is the arbiter of our conscious, our moral and ethical braking system, our social awareness, personal values, even our weight and health depend on it! Other experts caution against too much guilt which leads to any number of maladaptive concerns such as perfectionism, manipulation, obsessive compulsive disorder and the like. A great deal has also been written about those who seem not to suffer from any form of guilt at all, those without conscience or remorse, the narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths who fascinate us with their callous disregard for others and complete lack of shame. We are often mesmerized by the idea that it's possible for some to live without any guilt whatsoever. In measuring guilt and how it operates in daily life, I have drawn an interesting conclusion: there appear to be four basic forms of guilt. The first of which is that guilt is a way of stopping us from doing what would be considered morally, ethically, spiritually and/or culturally wrong, like stealing, lying etc. the second type of guilt is a motivator, meaning if one doesn't do something one will feel guilty, for example not reporting a crime, not doing something we have committed to doing, not living up to standards set by ourselves and others. Either of these two forms may be self-imposed or imposed upon us by others, internal or external. We can have internal or external braking guilt or internal or external motivating guilt, or indeed any combination of the four. So where does one draw the line between the kinds of guilt and shame that prevent us from doing wrong and motivate us towards right action versus being overburdened by so much guilt that we are too encumbered and cease to function in a healthy fashion? And what about those who seem to blithely bear no culpability at all for their actions.
