More Thoughts...

Don’t let yourself be led by your emotions. Emotions are often selfish, fickle, and irrational. Acknowledging and analyzing your emotions is important for your mental and physical health, so I’m not saying ignore them. I’m saying don’t be led by them, because that’s not what they're for.

Instead, be led by the use of sound reason, time tested principles, and wise council.

Our emotions are far to short sighted and impulsive to be counted on as reliable guides for our lives. Following them often leads us into inappropriate situations, confrontations, and financial ruin.

A life led by principles is better than a life led by emotions.
