When Ya Gotta Go, Ya Gotta Go


Do NOT discriminate.  Doesn’t matter if it’s a port-a-potty, a public restroom in a skeevy gas station, a smelly, sticky, overflowing bathroom at a frat party, the woods, a hole in the ground in a corporate office building in China (Oh yes I did), etc.

When ya gotta go, ya gotta go.

Don’t even think about it.  Do not stop to think… about who may be around.  How it may look. What they may think. Whether or not it might smell.  Whether or not you should hold it.

Because you should never, ever hold it.

When ya gotta go, ya gotta go.

Everybody goes.  And you don’t like to think about everybody going.  And you don’t like to think about everybody thinking about you going.  But the truth of the matter is that everybody goes.

And although you will be faced with some extremely, shall we say,  ‘off-putting’ toilettes, do not turn up your nose at them and resist your urge to go, now.

What you are trying to avoid are 2 things.

  1. Public restroom anxiety – Being particular about using any bathroom besides yours.  Not a very practical idea.  You will spend a large part of your life away from home, working, traveling, running errands, visiting, etc. And you cannot dictate when ya gotta go.  Because, if you ignore the call of duty, then this will lead into the 2nd thing you want to avoid…
  2. Lifelong problems going to the bathroom.  You run the risk of developing a dysfunction in the muscles used.  Causing constipation.  Not a laughing matter.  Not fun.  Not easy to deal with.  When you ignore your body’s tell-tale signs that ya gotta go, you are in essence playing with its internal clock and pushing it back.  You can only do that so many times before your body gets ‘backed up’ and doesn’t just release on demand.  This can be very painful, very uncomfortable, very distressing, and can lead to further issues with your digestive system.  And there have actually been deaths related to heart attacks from the strain of trying, and the buildup of toxins and waste, etc.

Don’t stifle the urge.  Listen to that call of nature!
