Emotional rationalisation: Something to add...

RS: Hey!

ES: Oh hey...what do you want?

RS: Well I've been thinking...

ES: Yes?

RS: You know how this year you slept with two guys who had girlfriends?

ES: Oh...yeah that.


ES: I won't.

RS: Dude, it is so not cool. Once is possibly understandable, people are human...it happens... but twice?!!

ES: You sound like my best friend.

RS: They're right. What do you think it says about you?

ES: That I was selfish...that I gave into desire...that I didn't think about the bigger picture.

RS: Right. Do you want to be that kind of person? Where are your morals? How would you like it if someone did it to you?

ES: I know. I did think about that at the time briefly but then I just decided to take the karma whack later.

RS: Well...People will always disapprove and they will think less of you.  Not that you should care what people think always but...You should care about yourself! Your decency is coming into question here! You really should have more self-respect...and self-restrain for that matter! Aim higher and don't be a douche bag. No one really gains from that sort of situation, okay?

ES:...Well... there is the sexual gratification in the moment...

RS: ...but it is short-lived and then there is aways the guilt! And if you're not feeling guilty...?!!!

ES: Okay, okay...I don't know why I let it happen...Well I did...they were both too fit to resist. I guess I was just being selfish, it was thrilling and I thought no harm could come of it as no one would find out.

RS: Well, you're wrong - if anything you've harmed yourself. You have called your character into question, I thought you wanted more for yourself?

ES: I do...I guess I just rationalised that it was all part of life's rich tapestry and a mistake to try and then be able to take something from it...the experience, a lesson learnt.

RS: Rationalised? Don't blame me for this... Well, consider it a lesson. It is not a good thing to do.

ES: Ok, ok...point taken.

RS: Good....but I'm watching you!
