This type of guilt may involve harm to others, such causing someone physical or psychological pain. Feeling the emotion of guilt for an action deserving of remorse is normal; to not feel guilty, in these cases, may be a sign of psychopathy. Guilt Cause #2: Guilt for something you didn't do, but want to. Guilt Cause #3: Guilt for something you think you did. If you think you did something wrong, you can experience almost as much guilt as if you actually committed the act or even more.
Pathological altruism involves excessive or extreme behaviours that go beyond self-sacrificing. Pathological altruism is often self-destructive in its consequences. It becomes pathological when the altruist cannot share the happiness of others, which follows his altruistic acts. In pathological cases a person may be sincerely engaged in altruistic deeds but may end up in harming her-/himself or the group she/he is trying to help, often in an unanticipated fashion. Or again a person may even become a victim of her/his own altruistic actions (Okley, Knafo, & McGrath, 2012).
Guilt is when we feel guilty when we have done something that we shouldn’t have done. This is a social emotion because we gain that guilt from evaluation from the environment around us. I would see guilt as a negative emotion because it could lower your self-esteem or self-perception of yourself when society has gained this image of something you have done when you should not have. The next social emotion is shame. Shame is the feeling of being a bad person rather than just doing something wrong.

Stereotyping is a means of assigning a set of characteristics to a group of people usually in an unflattering, over-generalizing way. Prejudice is forming an opinion, usually negative, about a person without having any real basis or facts to support that opinion. Discrimination is taking some form of negative action against a particular person rather than taking a positive action that you would normally take towards another person. Stigma is assigning a negative label to someone who is considered to be different for some reason. In the context of mental illness, all of these can contribute to making a patient feel even worse than he already does from his disorder and could potentially contribute to the success or failure of his ability to overcome the disorder.
7 Effects on Behavior Shame and guilt are not considered to be equally „moral“ emotions. While guilt seems to be more adaptive and beneficial for all parties involved, shame can lead to further complications (Tangney, Stuewig et al. 2007). Thus, shame and guilt result in different (moral) behaviors. The following paragraphs will contrast different consequential behaviors following the experience or anticipation of either shame or guilt, identified by Tangney, Stuewig et at (2007).

How much can a lie hurt or last? I believe that it will always depend of the reason of the lie and from the person that it comes from. A lie can hurt sometimes the feelings of people who believe in that lie also it breaks the trust between those individuals. A lie can be as painful as a stab in the heart; it brings out feelings such as pain, deception, horror to mention some of them. In the other hand a lie can save a life, prevent pain, suffering and even can bring hope in some cases.
