I had seen many on our way. Moose on roofs of shops; on signs; on country stores; definitely a popular figure on the moosefest town, but only that one with the sign made me want to touch it. What if it falls? I thought, what if I get yelled at in the middle of that crowded store...I didn’t want to risk it so I refrained.
I am not sure if it’s in my personality or in everybody’s. That which is forbidden or taken away becomes so desirable. And so I wanted it. I wanted that Moose.
Diets didn’t work for me because they enticed me to want what I was not allowed to have.
I wonder if that is why I – we – struggle with rejection. Not to take away from the feelings and affection to the item that rejects, but if it wasn’t for the rejection I wonder if we – I –would struggle so much with it.
