How can I better handle guilt? ?

Whenever I feel guilty I feel the need to cry. I cant help it. Can anyone offer me any advice with how to cope with feeling guilt? Thanks. 


Update: obviously i apologise but i still feel consuming guilt and feel the need to cry

    Acknowledge the guilt. Making excuses makes it worse. I was feeling so guilty about something I did thirty years ago, the other day, that I actually sobbed my heart out. I then asked for forgiveness and mercy (in my head). I don't know if it was the crying, or request for mercy - but I actually felt better!

    you could try apologizing for what you did
