Yesterday, I went to the restaurant and even if I was no longer hungry, I ordered a dessert because it was part of my menu. Today, it occurred to me that I follow menus as I follow instructions (I’m a teacher so I believe and I teach how important it is to follow instructions). So here are the models I’ve come up with on that situation:
C – restaurant’s dessert
T – I have to follow the menu’s instructions, whatever my hunger level is
F – compelled to follow the menu
A – I eat dessert
R – my stomach hurts and I’m angry at myself
T – my menu is a suggestion that can serve my appetite
F – freedom
A – I only order what my stomach really wants.
R – I feel good at the restaurant and afterwards, both physically and mentally.
What’s your opinion on that?
