Pine helps when we blame ourselves for things done or undone.
In a Pine state we may feel guilty even when events outside our control have caused a problem, or we may assume responsibility for mistakes made by others. We suffer needlessly.
We sometimes feel so guilty in a Pine state that we end up saying 'sorry' all the time.
The positive aspect of Pine is seen when we acknowledge our faults without dwelling on them, and put right where we can the things we did wrong. But at the same time, we know when we are blameless or have done our best and are content.
Suggested for when you feel guilt and shame – not necessarily based on any misconduct, but when you feel the possibility of living in joy has been destroyed.
