What determines a good craving vs a bad craving? Are all cravings created equally?
We don’t need to be speaking in regards to food only. You can be craving a person, a place, a thing, But what makes a craving good or bad?
Craving BAD + give into craving = guilty, shameful, angry, regretful.
Craving GOOD + giving into craving = happy, satisfied, excited, joyful.
When trying to figure out whether giving into a craving would be good or bad, just think of the equations above. This isn’t to say that eating a piece of birthday cake, or having a glass of wine is always bad or always good, but based on your goals and intentions what will the outcome be?
Giving into something in the moment is different than planning for that moment ahead of time. You can change something from bad to good by being in control of your choice. Plan your craving out, and be happy with your decision.
