When Emotions Run High, Logic Runs Low

Don’t make a permanent decision for your temporary emotion.

Hey loves, welcome back!

Cheers to another post. You may notice that many of my post link together.

When you need to make a hard decision, flip a coin. Why? Because when that coin is in the air, you suddenly know what you are hoping for.

So, I want to ask you guys something. Have you ever been in a situation, where you’ve made a decision based on your emotions at that moment? And if you would have calmed down before deciding, you would have chosen differently. Well, I am thinking about a lot of decisions I have made in the recent past, and it has affected my life tremendously.

Just on decision can change your life. In the heat of the moment, you are not thinking clearly. Your vision can be clouded based on your feelings.

We need to know how we are feeling. Mindfully acknowledging our feelings serves as an ’emotional therm

Thus, bringing me to self-awareness. Which, most do not have or actively use. According to Oxford dictionary, it is.


/ˈˌself əˈwernəs/


  • 1.conscious knowledge of one’s own character, feelings, motives, and desires:

Lack of self-awareness means that you lack social intelligence. I do not want to insult anyone with that. This is just something everyone must work on. You cannot interact with other people if you are not aware of yourself.

Let’s look at Marriage for example:

Now, I’ve never been married, but I think that deciding to get married should not be based on just emotions. Marriage is an important life decision and a lot of work. Love is not just enough. You need to be aware of how you and this person can really spend that rest of your life together and if you all are ready.

There are times when you need to cut off your emotions in certain situations so you can make a logical decision. If you let your emotions affect certain situations that decision may jeopardize things that you value. This topic is not even just for romantic relationships. It is also for decisions at work, decisions with family… For instance, if you’re having a family discussion at Thanksgiving and politics play a role. It is best that you just leave out emotions when having discussions about politics. Not that my family discuss politics at Thanksgiving. One change of tone in our discussion, and turned a whole conversation into an argument. And nobody likes to argue, at least anyone with maturity. I would highly suggest everyone take into considertation what their emotions are in certain situations. Below is a video of why self- Awareness is important. ( I do not own rights to this video)

I defiantly think everyone reading this post, to take time to think about if you are really self-aware and what steps you should take if you are lacking in that department. I really hope you all are satisfied after reading this post. Feel free to check out my other post. Like, Subscribe, comment, and share.
