Recently a Facebook post caught my eye.

It was advertising a beverage containing euphorics.

It is supposed to promote a feeling of wellbeing.

Hmmm …

This is not the first.

There is a long list of things we consume or do to feel better:

  • Alcohol
  • Drugs (legal and illegal)
  • Binging on TV and Social Media
  • Gambling
  • Shopping
  • Food

I am not saying that I don’t have a drink or take an aspirin.

What I am asking is:

Do you consistently use false pleasure to feel better?

How do you know if it is a false pleasure?

You know because you:

  • Think you need it to help you feel better.
  • You have an overpowering urge to use it.
  • The pleasure or relief it creates is temporary.
  • The thing that upset you returns.
  • You need to keep using or consuming in order to feel better.

Here is the thing.

There is a belief that we need that extra something to feel better.

This is a lie.

You have been given everything you need to feel better.

It is called your mind.

You were just never taught how to use your mind to feel better.

Yet using your mind to managing your thinking is:

The only thing that can give you the permanent relief you are seeking.

I understand that sometimes your feelings seem like they will:

  • Overpower you
  • Drowned you
  • Take you down for good

But I promise this is not true.

I also promise that false pleasure is exactly that.

It is:

  • False
  • It takes more and more to feel better.
  • It never solves the true problem.

Are you ready to stop using false pleasure to feel better?
