Pleasure has many faces and can be found in the simplest things. Life without pleasure and enjoyment would be arid. What are the dynamics of pleasure? How many facets does it have?
DO YOU RESIST PLEASURE?
Are you a person who enjoys the pleasures of life without any guilt? Or do you look upon pleasure with fear, and repel it whenever it draws close? Check out with this questionnaire.
DO YOU deny yourself what you most enjoy—foods you prefer but have convinced yourself are bad for you, work breaks to relax, little treats and presents?
DO YOU feel guilty that you're not doing enough or accomplishing enough?
DO YOU rehearse in your mind worst-case scenarios, so that you are fully prepared when and if something bad happens?
ARE YOU more likely to say no to an invitation or a new idea?
DO YOU get superstitious when good things happen?
DO YOU have a hard time acknowledging your success?
DO YOU live your life as a melodrama, playing tragedy king/queen?
DO YOU secretly or openly think of yourself as a victim?
ARE YOU abusive toward people who love you or treat you well?
DO YOU believe that love requires sacrifice and that the only way anyone will love you is if you forfeit your own needs and desires to theirs?
DO YOU abuse food, alcohol or drugs, and feel you can't have a good time without them?
IS SEX less than wonderful, limited in passion, and resulting in mediocre orgasms, if any?
DO YOU have to be in control of a situation, getting competitive with companions who make alternative suggestions?
DO YOU feel uncomfortable with solitude, making busywork to keep yourself occupied when you're alone?
If you've answered yes to any or all of these questions, you are most probably living a life of self-denial and need to work on relaxing and experiencing pleasure. From Zone by Stella Resnick
