Have you noticed that things we have intensely desired soon becomes rather ordinary and no longer endowed with the almost mystical aura that they had before we got it?
If we look at what typically happens we would see that we start with a desire for something. We think about it and start to build a rationale for why we want it. We will create elaborate logical arguments to justify and support why we want it to ourselves and others.
We can do an excellent job on selling ourselves on all of the plus benefits that we will receive and downplay or ignore any negative points. We have lost our perspective. At this stage driven by the demons of desire it has become an absolute need and must be satisfied.
After we have what we desired and the shine has worn off then the things we pushed aside or ignored come back to haunt us.
The key distinction we need to make before we start down the road is whether it is a need or a desire and keep that in mind as we look at the pros or cons of obtaining it and not fall into the trap of mistaking a desire for a need.
Have you ever found that once you obtained something that you wondered why you ever got it? Do you have a way of dealing with this issue? Your thoughts.
