The madness of innocent guilt

Dear Friends of Online Literature: In The Last Chronicle of Barset, what most impressed me was the reaction of Mr. Crawley to being falsely accused of having stolen 20. Specifically, after having suffered intensely for several weeks over this matter, he began to believe he must be guilty. Once, when I was falsely accused of something, being incapable of clarifying matters, time passed and I started feeling guilty! I thought, "I must be guilty for something, otherwise they would not accuse me." In psychology, there must be something which explains how this is possible. Perhaps because our own self-image depends much more on other persons' opinions of us than on our own introspection. I was eventually cleared of the misunderstanding. But, while I was going through the torture, like Crawley I was incapable of clearly separating fact from fiction.
