Temptation is temptation because it wasn't there until it didn't need to be.
Something has to go wrong in the current situation, or a void has to be filled for temptation to even be noticed. Or maybe, nothing of this sort ever existed before now.
It's a lot like what couples describe...people see you in a relationship, and suddenly the masses are forming in a line down the street and around the corner. They see how happy you are and they want part of it. Or maybe for some of them, they just desire being a home wrecker.
There you are. You've been living in this perfect picture;, it's everything you've wanted. It's everything you thought you wanted. But when other options are available, and they are trying so hard to get to your attention and worst of all get to you when you're at your lowest, it's a struggle. It's definitely one of the most complicated, terrible feelings in the world.
Because you don't know what to believe. Do you still want your original choice? But what about everything else, that is at times literally throwing itself at you? How can you determine what you want, what you need, and what is real?
