I gave the milk chocolate egg away. My best friend is going through some very difficult times and if she wants to medicate with chocolate, it's not for me to stop her.
See, the thing with her is, she can have one piece...
and then she just stops...
And it's not even willpower.
She just doesn't WANT anymore!
We're just wired differently, she and I. A piece of chocolate for her satisfies the craving.
For me, it just seems to amplify it.
Fan the flames, so to speak...
So by giving her the egg, I'm not hurting her or sabotaging her or anything.
The dark chocolate one (given to me by someone else), is another issue. I don't know anyone besides myself who likes dark chocolate.
My mother thought I should take the wrapper off and throw it in the ravine behind my house.
Sort of symbolic of throwing away my bad habits.
I don't know about "symbolic gestures." They may be really effective and meaningful for some people, but I just don't know if "symbolism" is what I need.
You know what I need?
To move on from the effing egg.
I'm throwing it in the garbage, and that,
as they say,
(Clearly, I have issues with food, if one/two pieces of candy can engender 3 blogs and this much soul searching!!!!)
Time to move on and grow up!
