“Guilt is really a form of arrogance which makes life all about oneself, rather than just learning the lesson, correcting the mistake and moving on. Forgiveness puts things in perspective and brings back innocence. It returns life to ease, flow and confidence.” – Chuck Spezzano
I never thought about guilt being a form of arrogance before. I love how reading someones words causes the word to form in my mind and get redefined. It’s like I am shining a light on a part of it that I never saw before. Arrogance is in the line “it’s all about me” and reminds me of how we react when we think that if I had only done this thing different, that thing wouldn’t have happened. That is arrogance, that someone’s misfortune somehow turned on only our actions or lack thereof.
