In this first post I would like to address guilty pleasures. My question? Why are they so guilty? Everyone has a time when they indulge in guilty pleasures because they are upset or bored to tears. Then we might get embarrassed or more sad. It just makes falling into a downward spiral easier than it should be. These things seem comforting to us but a bit pathetic at the same time. Whether it be old reality television reruns or 90s boy bands we should be able to have or own tastes without being put down. Together we can start taking the guilt out of guilty pleasures. Remember though, it works both ways. If you see someone eating a little bit of junk food let them be. Your best friend forever who just dedicated an entire wall to Johnny Depp? Give her the chance to get through it herself instead of forcing her through it. It's OK if your having a tough go of it right now. You can reach for that cookie dough ice cream. Its all part of the healing process and your not alone. That being said there is also a time when you have to pull yourself together and leave the guilt(and the old ice cream) in the trash. That's your daily dose of reality. Thanks so much for reading!
What are your guilty pleasures?
