I have a question regarding tawbah. I know we’re supposed to feel guilt and regret while making tawbah because it helps show our sincerity for regretting the action we made. However, what if we want to continue making tawbah for the same mistake from the past ? The first time I made tawbah I surely felt guilt and remorse but I try to not to make myself feel that way every time I think about that past sin and make istighfar because I feel like I will be setting myself up for depression. It’s hard to put guilt on ourselves everyday when we make istighfar. It really affects me my mental health. What I’m trying to ask is how do you do continue tawbah for a past mistake without making yourself depressed by beating down on yourself?

When we made tawbah with regret that is sufficient.
