Aye! Moving forward. Much better than backward. Good.

I'm thinking you had a sudden influx of those needing to save your soul after you did that. LOL

i believe that it is so vital keep people who you let go in the past

I look at this and think of the way I came to this conclusion as well. I now think of it on a basis of energy expended. Some peopple just cost to much energy to have in my life. After the establishment of healthy boundaries, it is curcial to extend energy into the things that bring peace and contentment and keeps you within the boundaries you have set for yourself. People that violate those boundaries need to be widdled out of ones life. You have only so much energy and to waste it on things that have the power to bring you down will only lead to a slide into thinngs that are unhealthy. I once learned that the only way you can help others is if you are strong and healthy first. That has to start with focusing on your mental and physical self first.  above anything else.

also feeling guilty will bring you nothing guilt most of the time is useless

This is definatly true with guilt that is out of control, or just not in control. Guilt is a healthy human mechanism that is not understood and is often abused.

Guilt is a simple reaction by your mind to the violation of your belief system. When you think of how messed up our belief systems are it is easy to see how guilt could easily become a malfunctioning hindrance to healthy functioning.

What needs to happen is a close and thourough examination of the beliefs that cause you to feel guilty. At times we need to alter our actions to align with our beliefs. There is however times when a closer examination will force us to face those beliefs and understand it is not what we are doing that needs to change, but the beliefs themselves. This is a crucial element to building healthy boundaries. Focused recapitulation of our beliefs and where those beliefs are derived from will help to establish healthy guilt reactions and turn guilt into a healthy tool instead of a crippling attacker.
