"Temporary happiness isn't worth long term pain" I was thinking of a dieter faced with a temptation saying this to himself as part of his inner dialog of resistance, but it applies to all of life, doesn't it?

Acknowledge how you feel about someone, but learn to control your emotions. By doing this, you allow your love interest enough emotional space to prove their interest (or lack thereof) in you. #SuccessConscious
