Avoidable Situations We Voluntary Put Ourselves In

If we can possialy avoid a situation that we know would hurt us, why is it that we still allow ourselves to keep doing it?

The Top Ten

1 Listen to Sad Songs After a Painful Break-up

Yeah because crying too those songs feel amazing! - Curti2594

We know doing this is going to destroy us, yet we still do it - time and again. - Britgirl

2 Cheat On Loved Ones

Cheat on a loved one is one of the few on here which doesn't apply to me (this, and listen to gossip, since I like to make my own mind up about people) I just wouldn't allow myself to fall into the trap to cheat; only a certain type of person would do this...
A simple message some might like to take notice of before cheating on the one you supposedly love is: If you don't want to get found out, don't do it! If you still go ahead with it, you deserve all you get. - Britgirl

3 Say Something We Immediately Regret

We can avoid it, we just have to think first - but still we don't and it's a shame. - Britgirl

8 Read the Ending of a Book Before the Beginning

I'm not guilty of this but I know people who do do this and then moan because they find out the hero/ine has been killed. Pointless. - Britgirl

Okay...I've done this, But I swear I read the half of it and then committed this sin!
But...I've got some self control now..don't do that anymore :-) - Ananya
