The Thing I know I should do:
-- the right thing, the helpful thing
-- the thing I don't have to hide, worry about, fight about, or regret
-- the thing where I end up feeling good about myself.
The Thing I feel like doing:
-- the easy thing, the thing that avoids conflict or upsetting someone, the thing I do out of guilt
-- the no self-control thing, the thing that causes conflict, the thing I do out of bitterness or resentment
-- the self-indulgent thing, the irresponsible thing, the thing I do regardless of the consequences
-- the thing where I end up feeling not so good about myself.
The Thing I actually do.
When the thing I know I should do becomes the thing I actually do, it's contentment.
