There are all sort of temptation in our daily lives. Relationships with the opposite gender, temptation about foods, laziness and others. If you want to give-in, you definitely give-in. But if you want to resist it more than you want to give-in, then you can resist. But how? Can you give examples on how to resist temptations?

I resist tempatations by "dropping the idea" trying to resist will only let you fight the tempation more. When tempation comes and the urge comes, try to distract yourself with other ideas. Juts let the tempation idea go, and think of another topic, that way, your mind will focus on that other topic and the tempation will go away.

Our life is full of various temptations and we are resisting it at all times. For all people, they are trying their best to contend with temptations. Once they can't resist the temptations, it means that they will have to face the big losses because temptations are all scams and traps. For example, for people who are losing weight, the delicious food is just the main temptation, if they can't resist it, then they will fail to lose weight even if they have made great efforts. Life is like a journey and we have to be careful all the time in case of being tricked.

I have been married 12 years and over the years there have been times when I found myself with a physical attraction to the opposite gender. I know from experience the best resistance is to never open yourself to the possibility. I am always friendly but, I distance myself. I believe anyone can get themselves in a bad situation. The way you develop feelings for someone is to put in some kind of time with them. Getting to know them in essence, Starting a relationship as innocent as you intend that to be. Is a very big mistake. I have no friends of the opposite gender, I don't need them I have my husband if I need a man's point of view. Bottom line is ..If you love your spouse you make sacrifice's for the relationship.
