Teshuva is often associated with feelings of guilt and shame that are completely counterproductive in making any kind of meaningful change. Yet from the earliest time, authors of the classic Jewish treatments of Teshuvah, and modern psychologists have shown how feelings of self worth, positivity, and a quest to discover meaning in life can be the agents of genuine, authentic and lasting Teshuva. Our life is all too often filled with - internal and external - voices that tell us that we are not good enough, inadequate and flawed. Many sages see these attitudes as something so corrosive that one has to do Teshuva for allowing them to define the way we see ourselves.
