aren't all created equal.
Some are more helpful than others."
Often strong feelings can be self-defeating, in a vicious circle.
A strong feeling acts like it has all the facts, but that's almost
never the case. The principle of Feelings says, "Feelings are
fleeting and often deceiving because theyre only concerned
with themselves and can't see beyond their own interest."
little children, our emotions are good problem sensors,
but they're not very good problem solvers.
Feelings are emotional impulses that can become selfish bullies
if they're indulged. If we give in and don't try to control them,
they prevent us from doing those things that might help us solve
the problems that they sense.
We need to manage our emotions rather than to be at their mercy.
The key to that is to escape from the swampland and quicksand
of self-perpetuating impulses and emotions and get back onto
solid ground of reason by weighing feelings vs. our other values.
