I feel guilty

Kate_20Kate_20 Posts: 588 Incredible Poster
Some people kindly invited me into a group and I unfortunately killed the atmosphere of the group. People are no longer talking frequently in that group after I sent my messages. I already asked the administrators and they said that the question was allowed in that group. But I cannot stop feeling guilty.

    Hi @Kate_20 I’m sorry to hear you are feeling guilty because of this. If you checked that the question you asked was allowed, can I ask why you are feeling like you did something wrong? Has anyone told you that you did? Sending you hugs 💜

    Hi @Kate_20

    As @Lucy307 said, it seems you have not done anything wrong. If these people invited you into the group I am sure that they are more than happy for you to be there. Although, I do empathise with you as group situations can be difficult especially if it is new. I still over think things I do or say in groups with friends I have known for years, I think it is a normal response as we want these people to like us. There is no need to feel guilty and I know it is easier said than done but try not to put pressure on yourself, you have been welcomed into a friendly group of people :)

    hope this helps <3

    @Kate_20 first of all, well done for socialising with others, I know it’s been really difficult for you! I’m really sorry that your brain is honing in on the negative aspects of this conversation. I feel like as they’ve invited you, they understand and I feel like maybe it’s just your brain using it’s negativity bias to find things to prove the negative thoughts you have about yourself. I am sure they were all so happy and grateful for you being there and contributing to the group.

    I know it can be really difficult to see that when your brain isn’t letting you see the positives and I know that socialising with others has been very difficult for you, but I think you’ve done such a wonderful thing and made a great step for yourself and you should be super proud of yourself! Do you feel able to explain more about what happened to make you feel guilty?

    @Lucy307 @daisyella12 @Brookee @Laura_tigger82 Okay yeah it did not affect the group. People are talking again in the group. They are amazing people. I just feel a bit inadequate as they are so amazing. It has nothing to do with them. Just me overthinking.
