Most of us know how to feel and how to think.
The problem is we think when we need to feel and we become emotional when we need to think.
Decision making is what steers our lives and yet it is common for people to make decisions based on emotion instead of fact.
An example is when we choose relationships because of the way we feel about another person instead of also factoring in whether the object of our affection is also right for us.
In the alternative, we can also make decisions about people sans emotion – and that can lead to trouble.
The person who quits the job she loves because she hates her boss is thinking with her heart and not her head.
One who raises a family based solely on right and wrong will find that love must also be communicated from the heart.
When I was getting divorced a counselor said to me, for a person who made a lot of good decisions in my life, I made bad ones when I made decisions based only on my heart and not my head.
François de la Rochefoucauld :
“The heart is forever making the head its fool”.
