Hurt

We are bombarded by ads, first the ones that tell us how happy we will be if we just eat this or eat that.  A glorious morning if we eat our frosted flakes, unbounded happiness if we drink our energy.  Second are the ads that tell us how to get rid of the pain of eating the first thing.  Eat that Chili and you can get rid of the heartburn with double strength, over the counter pain relief.  Why do we go in this circle?  What makes us eat something we know will hurt us?  We get a temporary buzz from the food and then we feel like crap, we get a hangover.  Many of us have learned to make fun of our own misery.  “I’m so stuffed, I can barely move” is not something to be proud of.
I think we are covering a pain deeper than the hurt we create from eating crappy food.  Is short term “happiness” better than a life time of pain?
What breaks the cycle of eating to dull our bodies of misery?
Feel.
Feel.
Feel.
