Best Answer

Some people, who are called "sociopaths," never feel guilt at all. So, obviously, even if they are guilty and understand how others could think them guilty, they have no problem whatsoever about that living with themselves.

Some people who are guilty may not understand that they are guilty. So they, too, have no problem living with themselves even if they are guilty because they do not understand themselves to be guilty.

Some people manage to live with themselves even if they are guilty and understand that they are guilty. Often, they make their situation easier either by minimizing its importance or by thinking that others share the guilt.

Furthermore, they may simply forgive themselves. After all, we all make mistakes. So it's possible to be guilty, accept one's responsibility, and still continue living.
