Unresolved guilt can show up in seemingly unrelated ways: Perhaps you are unable to take care of yourself and have a poor relationship with money. When your inner drill sergeant acts as a jailer, you overwork and feel bad when you take time off to unwind or have fun. You feel like a fraud, despite all your outward success. At the office, you put up with mistreatment and exploitation. If you were taught that complaining about anything was wrong, you now repress your feelings. You are wary of being vulnerable with anyone as you fear you are imposing on them, even in close friendships and romantic partnerships.
