So, you’ve made the decision, you’re going to kick the chocolate for Lent.
Whether it be for religious reasons, raising some money for charity or just a good reason to get healthy – you’re going to do it. You’re really, really going to do it….right?
Here are some people you are bound to meet during the hardest month of the year:
The ‘Ah go on it’s just one square’ One
Peer pressure can be so hard…especially where chocolate is concerned
The ‘but you’re not even religious’ One
Sigh. Can’t a girl use a good excuse to make some positive changes?!
The ‘it will do you the world of good – keep going’ One
Sounds nice, is in fact a deeply-rooted backhanded compliment
The 'oh, you've only given up chocolate, I've given up sugar completely' One
And she actually has, and succeeds…ugh.
The 'wow – well done, I'm not sure I could do that' One
Sweet, well-meaning and complimentary. More like you please.
