Overcoming Toxic Remorse
Many times when someone has a mental health issue it brings with it a number of behaviors and ways of thinking that have damaged relationships. So, we end up hurting the very people we love; the people who are “for us”. Once out of the heat of a manic episode or deep depression we many times have deep remorse for the pain that we have caused those around us. And while appropriate to take responsibly for our behavior our regret can also become toxic to us being able to move forward. So, how much regret is enough? When is it time to move forward? How do you overcome toxic remorse and regret? That is the subject of this edition of Fresh Hope for Mental Health.
