Relief or Pleasure?
Stemming from yesterday's thoughts:
Are most people successful at attaining pleasure or merely relief? And are they calling this relief that they experience, "pleasure" or "happiness"?
Food when you're hungry, water when you're thirsty, going to the restroom, sex with a stranger: the feelings obtained are really just physical relief, no?
And yet, people can mistake these experiences for "pleasure", even "joy", because they are the best feelings they've ever experienced. But, it's truly a misunderstanding with the definition of these words.
Ok, that's pretty deep for one day.
