By definition, a guilty pleasure is something that you enjoy despite feeling that it is not generally held in high regard. However, I think it refers to something that you enjoy indulging in but others want you to feel guilty about doing so.
In this pressure-laden world where you are competing madly for everything you want, small pleasures that you sneakily enjoy are more than welcome. Yes, you may feel a tad bit guilty about it because that’s how you have been conditioned to think.
Have You Given In To Guilty Pleasures Before?
A guilty pleasure is not something you encounter when you grow up. You might have experienced it during your childhood too but just didn’t know what it was.
As a kid, I always wanted to eat more chips or toffees than I had, but my mother refused to give them more often than not. What did I do? Went up to my grandparents to ask for money because I knew they loved me too much to not humor me. And, they always came through.
I may have felt bad for cheating with my mother, but was happy for myself nevertheless.
As we grow up, we make time and space for the little things that add cheer or spice to our life, no matter how much others may look down upon them. From having a cheat day while gymming to using cheesy pick-up lines, we all have some secret indulgences.
So, here are the 10 guilty pleasures that Indian millennials treat themselves to every now and then.
Be Unabashedly and Unapologetically You
A sense of right and wrong is important to maintain some sanity, but who has the authority to define and therefore, confine the boundaries of what is right and what’s not?
To my mind, what you can live with happily and peacefully is right and what you can’t is wrong. I hope you have your own idea of how far you can go and what you can do to achieve what you wish to.
If there’s anything that makes you even momentarily happy, go ahead and do it with abandon. After all, a life lived while not indulging in what you fancy is a life not lived to the fullest.
