    How have people dealt with the guilt and shame that comes from previous life choices, like porn, in a non-believer/secular way?
     
  2. I have no one to blame but myself. My problems were not caused by god, satan, or any other supernatural entity that somehow took control. On the same thought, my problems were not caused by my troubled first marriage. The porn and behaviors I waded into are on me.

    I'm struggling with forgiving myself and dealing with the guilt and shame. I always thought religious "forgiveness" was a cop-out; a quick and easy wave of the hand and everything is now ok.

    All I can do is try to be a better person for me and be a better influence to my family and friends. I hope I can let go of the guilt and shame as I improve.

  3. Best way to forgive yourself for the past is to live today your best life and make progress towards becoming the best person you can be.
