It’s a normal part of our existence, but if we indulge in our emotions, i.e. go overboard and dwell on them, or don’t let go of some negativity that we’ve been holding on for too long, we will experience the consequences of such a wrong mental mood.
Don’t succumb to emotions. Emotions are the wild card that will keep you short of true reason.
What do I mean by that? When we get emotional about any issue we tend to react rather than step back, think, decide, and act. Once we are fully engulfed in our feelings we no longer think reasonably or rationally. Instead, we blow everything out of proportion and dig ourselves into a deeper "hole".
Even with good emotions, like love and compassion, it’s important to stay balanced and evenly reasonable. Yes, there is such a thing than too much compassion. When we start neglecting ourselves, in body and spirit, and only focus on the cause we are passionate about, we are out of balance. When we are trying to convince the world to think like us, because we feel so deeply that we are in the right and others are in the wrong, we are out of balance. When we start developing anger and hatred for something that’s going on in the world and it causes us to feel that anger and disgust so deeply, it will affect our bodily health.
It's not worth it and therefore, I know that I will watch my emotions carefully and always consult with my reasoning, to straighten myself out. Reason first, think about how to make this your best life ever, and then feel it, think it, love it, and feel it some more!
