A to Z of mental health: guilt

I put him through so much
I'm not able to help myself
I wish I could feel better
I'm useless really

I wish I could help her
I worry so much about her
I wish I could do more
I'm useless really

How can I make this easier for him?
What can I do to show my appreciation?
Does she know I love her?
When will she stop blaming herself?



This poem is written for the letter G of my A to Z of mental health.

I live with a mental illness, and although things aren't too bad right now, I still feel guilty for what my husband had to go through at the worst of times. I know it isn't anything I can control, but I'm trying to let go of the guilt.

Ah guilt! I don't like guilt, too.

Guilt is just a crappy thing.

I work to get it out of my life. I don't always succeed but I'm happier without it.

I just remind myself, "I have always done the best I can with what I knew at the time!"

Thanks for linking.

This was quite thought provoking.
