In the immortal words of Dr Phil, " How's that workin' for ya?"
We put so much stock in our feelings.
But consider this...
Feelings are terrible leaders.
They can change with a whim, such as thirst or hunger (or worse yet, a hormone!)
Why would you let them make decisions?
Feelings are like puppies.
Did you ever try to ignore a puppy?
They command 100% of your attention sometimes.
They can be all consuming.
But you wouldn't want one to balance your checkbook.
