Guilty (How can this be? Some people say they feel guilty about something when really they are angry. Mary was asked to pick up her neighbor's kids from school so their mom could get her hair cut. Mary says no and then tells her husband that she feels guilty for not doing it. Actually, she feels angry for even being asked since she herself would not schedule a hair cut at that time. But Mary's image of herself doesn't include anger, so she covers her anger with guilt. You can find out if you are doing this by replacing the word angry for guilty each time you say guilty. See how it feels.)
