Dysfunctional state of mind
Feeling guilty, blaming yourself for other’s mistakes
Innate resource / positive virtue
Responsibility / Forgiveness
"I express the best of myself and my abilities: every result is full of value, either for itself, or for what it teaches me!"
Pine is the Bach Flower of choice for those who blame themselves for their own mistakes, often also for those of others, and who even when the results are positive feel they have not tried hard enough or that they could have done better. By nature, the Pine type is inclined to take responsibility for whatever situation involves them. We can say that Responsibility is their innate resource. However, this attitude originates from the belief that they have never given enough and have never achieved enough. They end up attributing to themselves an unjustified self-punishment.
Pine invites us to develop the virtue of Forgiveness, which is the ability to act with understanding and indulgence: firstly, towards oneself, and then towards others. In fact, what makes Pine functional is the ability to fairly assess responsibility (one’s own and other’s) and to forgive (oneself and others) personal human limitations which are not a mistake but a normal way of learning.
