“I can have some of that because I’ve been doing so well on my diet.”
“I deserve that. After all, I’ve been so diligent.”
“They’re so good. I’ll just have 3 or 4 more. That’s OK because last time I didn’t have 3 or 4 more, I only had 2 more.”
But get this.
“I am going to have some of that, that, and that because all those other times when I was tempted I didn’t eat any of that.”
You can justify what you did do and what you didn’t do and what you were tempted to do but didn’t do.
You can justify anything.
