Where does guilt come from?

Is it us punishing ourselves for acts that go against our upbringing?

Did we create these norms for ourselves we need to go by, otherwise we will feel guilty to the point of hating ourselves at times?

Are these the norms that society makes us follow?

Is it a mix of all of these?

Guilt is one of the worst feelings in the world. It makes you feel weak, sad, angry. Miserable.

I feel guilty for being in a relationship with someone I don’t see a future with. And for finding this guy from my school I met recently so terribly attractive.

I’m a 20-year-old girl who wants to date casually until the right person comes along, yet somehow I feel guilty doing so. Is it too much too ask? Who the hell is making these rules?
