Mistresses is a very interesting show. I can see how these ladies can get trapped in these types of situations. Not all of them are innocent of course. But hormones and emotions have funny way of encouraging us to do things we know we shouldn’t be doing. Somehow we slowly start to allow ourselves to believe “this is okay because…” whether it’s the first time we’ve ever down anything bad or we think we or someone else deserves it, we trick ourselves into giving ourselves the go ahead to do something foolish and wrong. Sometimes we’re just so fed up with things that we just don’t care altogether, for that moment anyways. We’re also pretty good at blocking out those responsible thoughts when we’re trying to satisfy a particular need. At the end of the day we know nothing truly justifies our behavior, yet we can see how people are driven to do such things.
