A trip you should never take. You should feel guilty when you know you have done something you know is wrong. You should set things right if you can or at least try to avoid doing the wrong thing again. The main thing is your actions are based on what you think and feel, not on what someone who is trying to manipulate you wants to make you think and feel.

Jonathan didn't like everyone telling him that he's on a guilt trip, so he went to an online site and posted his own bogus definition for the phrase to cover up for the real meaning. He was obviously on a guilt trip.

This is when a person feels very guilty over a situation, and their mind goes on a trip into a path of thought where they become upset over their wrongdoing. This is very much filled with remorse, and the inability to get their mind back into a normal state of thinking. Often times occours when a situation is your fault, or if you care deeply about the people involved in this situation.
