Write a piece where the ‘ghost’ of your guilt visits you – what form does it take and what message does it bring?
Sometimes, guilt lingers long after our loved ones have passed. This prompt provides an opportunity to visualize this guilt—giving it a shape, a voice, maybe even a personality. Write about the conversation you would have with this entity. This exercise can be therapeutic, helping unearth buried feelings of guilt, and finding a path to forgiveness.
