Currently in our society we are conditioned to want everything quickly and easily. We have been programmed to believe that ‘the best things in life are for free’, and that the things that require zero to very little effort on our parts give us the most fulfillment.
We have been conditioned to want to lose 100 lbs in a month (as if that’s even healthy), to rush to work, to eat ‘fast’ food, to do everything that is comfortable, and to avoid anything that could give us an uncomfortable (or negative) emotion.
We have been conditioned to cover our emotions up with food rather than to walk through them. When we are upset, we eat, because it hides our emotions, and that is much easier, so much easier than actually feeling them. But feeling them would release them.
