Transcript of Guilt (Macbeth)

Healthy Guilt vs. False and Harmful Guilt "The Definitive Guide to Guilt" Guilt Macbeth Passages From Dakota S. & Diana S. "You're thinking about committing and act in which you deviate from your own moral code or engage in behavior that is dishonest, unfaithful, or illegal.The very fact you're contemplating an act that violates your own standards can be as guilt-provoking as the act itself." Guilt For Something You Want To Do "The most obvious reason to feel guilty is that you actually did something wrong. This type of guilt may involve harm to others like causing someone physical or psychological pain." Guilt For Something You Did "Theories and emotions tell us that a lot of the unhappiness we experience are due to our own irrational thoughts about situations." "Guilt is, first and foremost an emotion. Its one of the "sad" emotions which also include agony, grief, and loneliness." Guilt For Something You Think You Did Details from the Article "False guilt can cause people to make irrational decisions which leads to irrational behavior." Details from the Article "Fear often has us imagining the worst possible outcome to a problem when in reality the outcome is rarely as bad as fear tells us its going to be." Details from the Article "People suffering from false guilt nearly always have difficulty being truthful with how they think, feel, and act. They have a hard time telling people 'no.'" "False guilt has nothing to do with whats true and accurate, nor is it related to true repentance. Rather, it is usually the fear of disapproval in disguise." Act I, Scene III Act III, Scene IV "Thou canst not say I did it: never shake thy glory locks at me(Seeing Banquo's ghost)" (Macbeth, 45). Act IV, Scene I "Time thou anticipat'st my dread exploits: the flighty purpose never is o'ertook unless the deed go with it; from this moment the very firstlings of my heart shall be the firstlings of my hand. And even now, to crown my thoughts with acts, be it thought and done" (Macbeth, 58). Act V, Scene I "Out damned spot! Out I say! One: two : why then, tis time to do't. Hell is murky! Fie, my lord, fie! A soldier and afeard? [...] yet who would have thought the old man would have so much blood on him"(Lady Macbeth, 72). Act IV, Scene III "They were all struck for thee! naught that I am, not for their own demerits, but mine [...]" (Macduff, 68) Mary Margret/Snow White Emma/Snow White's Daughter Regina/Evil Witch Mr. Gold/Rumpelstiltskin "Never underestimate the power of a guilty conscience" (Rumpelstiltskin).
Rumpelstiltskin: There's no greater pain than regret.
Baelfire: Try abandonment. "She needs to be stopped. She needs to be killed. This is our family and we are going to protect it" (Saying this about Regina's mom, Cora). Guilt and Drugs "Many teen drug abusers know that what they are doing is wrong, even though they keep doing it. Some realize the pain they’ve caused loved ones, or the financial trouble they got themselves into because of their addiction. Their actions cause some addicts to feel guilt." Guilt and Suicide "In homes where domestic violence occurs, children are physically abused and neglected at a rate 15 times higher than the national average. Several studies have shown that in 60% to 75% of families in which a woman is battered, children are also battered." Guilt and Domestic Abuse "When a teen commits suicide, the family members of the victim aren’t the only ones who are grappling for answers. Many teens who commit suicide leave behind friends and classmates who struggle to make sense of the loss." "You don't have to be hostile. I know you like me, I can tell. You're just... pushing me away because I make you feel guilty. It's OK. I know why you gave me away. You wanted to give me my best chance" Henry Mills(Emma's Son). "Yes, I am. But I forgive you. Even if you can't admit what you did, I forgive you anyway. Your life must be filled with such incredible loneliness if your only joy comes from destroying everyone else's happiness. It's so sad, Mayor Mills, because despite what you think, it won't make you happy. It's only going to leave a giant hole in your heart" (Mary Margret said this to Regina). "[...] If good, why do i yield to that suggestion
Whose horrid image doth unfix my hair
And make my seated heart knock at my ribs, Against the use of nature? Present fears are less than horrible imaginings" (Macbeth, 8).
