Haven’t you had the experience of enjoying a salty, crunchy snack when suddenly you crave something sweet? You’ve got sensory fatigue – eating more of the salty snack will continue to decrease satisfaction. How do you get the enjoyment back? In order to enjoy the salty snack again, you need an intermission of something sweet: milk chocolate, ice cream, or some soda.
After thinking about this scenario, would you say that tastes are opposites, or are they complimentary?
What about solitude and togetherness? Sometimes we engage in the craving cycle in relationships. How do we get out when we feel stuck? Can we avoid the cycle without avoiding relationships?
