Chaplain Liz, I have so many regrets

Chaplain Liz, I have so many regrets, and the guilt that I feel is overwhelming since my best friend died. I don’t seem to be able to move forward. What should I do?

We all have regrets and feel guilty about what we should have done or not done in regards to relationships. We are not perfect. I would suggest that you pray first and be honest with God about your guilt. He will help you see things from His perspective. It may also be helpful for you to talk to someone about your feelings. It is often so much easier to see the things we did not do instead of seeing all those things we did which were good. Take time to reflect on your time with your best friend. If you did make some mistakes and your guilt is real, ask the Lord for forgiveness and set yourself free.
