Emotions are an imporant aspect of living, but sometimes they simply get in the way. Yes, they make life more enjoyable, but other times they make life untolerable. People have made horrible, life-changing decisions simply because they let their emotions get the best of them.
Emotions play a role in life, but that’s just it they play just a role. We cannot allow our emotions to lead us if we are going to live healthy, successful lives. What do I mean?
There are times when we have to emotionally detach from a situation in order to handle it the right way. Emotions are often misleading, deceiving, and wreckless. Emotions lead us to overreact and do things that we often regret. Emotions will cloud our vision and prevent us from seeing a situation objectively. Emotions influence our perceptions and we all know that perceptions are not always reality.
The next time you find yourself in a frustrating situation, attempt to detach emotionally. Take a step back, reflect, and respond objectively vs. emotionally.
Don’t let your emotions get the best of you. They are not in control.
