we ate for happiness and became unhappy.
we ate for joy and became miserable.
we ate to be outgoing and became self-centered.
we ate for sociability and became argumentative.
we ate to be agreeable and became irritable.
we ate for friendship and made enemies.
we ate to sleep and awakened without rest.
we ate for strength and felt weak.
we ate for energy and became apathetic.
we ate for relaxation and got edgy.
we ate for confidence and were filled with doubt.
we ate for freedom and became slaves.
we ate for power and became powerless.
we ate to soften sorrow and wallowed in self-pity.
we ate medicinally and acquired health problems.
we ate because the job called for it and lost the job.
we ate to feel heavenly and knew hell.
we ate to forget and were haunted.
we ate to handle problems and saw them multiply.
we ate to cope with life and invited death.
we ate to feel better and always felt worse.
