If you must eat the cookie, then you must.
You can ask me whether I think you should, or not, but I’ll tell you that what I think doesn’t matter.
What I think doesn’t change the fact that you feel you must.
Where I come in is with questions:
- Why do you feel you must?
- Is the cookie really what you want?
- If you weren’t happy with your decision this time, then how can you improve that decision next time?
But yes, for right now, if you must, then there’s no judgement.
