Can the effects of guilt be more damaging to others than the action for which the guilt is felt originally was? :blink: Why?

I do many things that do not matter, but that I feel extreme guilt about. I have hurt very few people very few times in my life, but I am ridden with guilt. For being a good person, I am punished.

Certainly because once the action is done it is over. But guilt is an emotion. It stays with a person. We dwell on it and it grows. Guilt can completely incapacitate a person. And more times than not the guilt is not ours to carry.
