Temptations are present in our life since the moment we born. They test us and they can take everything from us. We say that temptation is when we want more than we can handle. Because of this, they are bad and we should avoid them. Even the most successful people in the world are just people. They have boundaries and limitations. We all have, this is normal.
Temptations want to make us break our boundaries and our rules in order to get something more. If you have enough, you don’t need more. The simplest example. A married man wants to have a young mistress. It is possible. He cannot resist to the temptation and he starts an affair. His wife finds out (this always happens) and she leaves him. This example can be applied on any other aspect of life.
Before you start thinking on should you do something that will have a negative effect on your life and your happiness, ask yourself, do you really need that? In many cases we want something that we don’t need. A new smartphone or a new car are the most popular examples.
We all know that it is hard to resist to temptations. Because we want them so much and they are ‘’forbidden fruit’’, we must have them. This is just an ordinary greed. We all have it and we cannot remove it from our lives, but we can control it. Some risk you must take, but some you must pass. The key is to make a difference and decide which ones you must pass and which ones you must take. Only you can decide this.
