Guilt of ruining my life


I have a situation.

I consider myself a smart, talented and lucky person. I used to have a company that I built from zero to multimillion business. However, at some point, it happened that I stepped down from active management, and one of my managers has taken over, and in a couple of years, he destroyed the company.

I ended up paying big and now have nothing. I did not have the courage to fire the person even that I saw he was stealing from the company / me. I was always afraid of the consequences…and in the end, I am now less financially independent. I lost the business I loved and enjoyed.

I feel lots of guilt and anger and disappointment that I ‘screwed everything so badly. And I cannot find the strength or system or something to start over or improve all of this.

Moreover, I am now much, much older…
