Good Morning All,
Better late than never regarding my promised post. It's thirty minutes before lunch as I finish up at the library. I am re-reading Conrad Baars, MD, Feeling and Healing Your Emotions. Baars emphasizes that there is a needed partnership between our emotional and intellectual lives as we go about making decisions. Allowing reason to guide our emotions, places the decisions we make on more solid footing with less chance that we will regret them. A little history...
When I was young and impressionable, life experiences as well as gut instinct taught me how to react to life. When I became an adult, I was often derailed by decisions made in haste based on how I felt. I made poor decisions for a lack of reason. Conrad Baars, MD points out that when our emotions are coupled with reason, we lessen the chance of that happening. Reason helps us weigh the pros and cons of decisions before committing to them. Reason helps calm the emotions and gives us time to think.
