Not because I ran out.
They are still right here in the apartment.
Even in my hand.
That would be too easy -
to quit after I drank the rest of the stash!
*Just one more - then I'll quit--- right?*
Well, I never opened one of them.
The old equal and opposite reaction thing.
As much as I love them, that how much I crave them now.
That is to be expected.
And it's not good to give your control away to
something or someone that cannot love you back!
It's like a diet - I was tired of being at the mercy of
advertising and food-porn suggestions.
When I would see some yummy food product,
It was like my mind was pre-occupied with it.
And determined to buy it and eat it!
Or at least think about it all.day.long.
But it never delivered the enjoyment it promised.
Well, once in a great while it did.
And the randomness of it all was addicting!
Stop when PRE-occupied!
Stop messing around
Drop what you are doing
Learning Frustration Tolerance is like taking a plunge
in a really cold pool. It's not so bad, once you get used
to it. I might even be learning a thing or two.
As for the easy way.... not always so easy....
(The "can I haz a kitteh" pictures are from the inter*webs...)
Hope your day is wonderful!
And not too frustrating!
