Guilty pleasure is what we feel when we are on a diet and eat a delicious chocolate bar. When we mess somebody’s plans although we know it was wrong. Guilty pleasures are wrongs we do to others or ourselves to obtain what we believe is a right. All unnecessary material things are guilty pleasures but, not all of the guilty pleasure are unnecessary material things. That feeling of victory that at the beginning is gigantic, slowly becomes overridden by the guilt underneath it that grows and grows until it completely overwhelms us. It doesn’t matter how strongly we believe we can defeat the sense of guilt beneath that victorious sensation, because unfortunately, it has always been easier to destroy than to create. So what makes something a guilty pleasure? Something that at first looks like the reward we have been waiting for our entire lives but when we get it the joy only lasts a very short time and that time exponentially increases and later becomes the duration of the sense of guilt which is even bigger than the previous righteous feeling.
Chocolate on a diet is a guilty pleasure, betraying a friend to get a benefit is a guilty pleasure, cheating on a husband or wife is a guilty pleasure. Whatever we do can be interpreted as a guilty pleasure, wherever we go can be thought to be a guilty pleasure. The reason why we’ve done this or that, our motivation to go to one place or another. Someone that makes you feel good is a guilty pleasure, because someone you know and trust will be against that person.
A guilty pleasure can be an emotion, it can be a feeling, it can be something we desire, a wicked sensation that we know is wrong but feels so good. To conclude, a guilty pleasure is when we do something that feels good and out of nowhere we start getting doubts and those doubts turn into guilt and that guilt never stops growing until we are completely overwhelmed and we must confess what we have done or immediately do something to right that wrong.
So take a moment to identify the guilty pleasures in your life and analyze how you feel and if what you get at first is worth the agonizing guilt that follows, and if you are not capable of identifying a guilty pleasure, do something you haven’t done in a long time because you think it’s wrong and let’s see how you feel.
