guilt is a symptom of fear

‘don’t take yourself too seriously’ goes the advice
which is pretty sound
but then there are also people who take themselves not seriously enough
these people have a hard time asserting themselves and going after what they truly want
although they may have an enviable ease about them
-which is a kind of buffering-
they feel massive guilt over claiming things for themselves
and usually feel undeserving of care
that’s why I would qualify the above statement
in terms of ‘not more & not less’
for, as always, the trick is to align:
take yourself seriously enough but not too much
relax into that sweet spot
