We love to gobble up our pleasures, but to what extent do our pleasures gobble up us?
Are you exercising self control, or losing it? The more you have available at your fingertips, the greater the need to enjoy all things in moderation.
As Life gets harder to navigate, as you feel you have less and less control over what happens in the world and what happens to you, personally, the urge to indulge in instant pleasures becomes a powerful way to escape. Indulge in comfort foods, in buying sprees, in alcohol or drugs, in sex, in computer or Internet games, in extreme sports, or just about anything. Yet, going too far can ruin you, ruin your health, your relationships, your career, your self-esteem, your finances, your life. Getting hooked can hurt you and all who care about you and depend upon you.
Are you treating yourself, or mistreating yourself, and those who love you?
