Guilt vs Empathy

shaolingrrl muses on the continuum between guilt and empathy. Interesting stuff.

A portion of my response in her comments section:

Guilt leads one to place the perceived needs and interests above one's own actual needs and interests. Empathy leads one to balance the perceived needs and interests of others with one's own.
