Thinking and Feeling at the same Time
It seems like a ‘no brainer’ doesn’t it? And, that it is.
Some of us work hard avoiding our full range of emotions. While others of us are guided by our emotions, and often depend on someone else to think for us. Both ways of walking in this world cause us problems. Can you see why?
The person who lives in his/her head and for years just won’t feel emotions like fear, anger, sadness, eventually gets anxious, not knowing what’s going on. Like a tea pot boiling inside, a person who avoids emotions just allows a tiny whistle of tension to seep out of his/her spout.
The Emotional Molly or Max type of person is guided by his emotions. Drama ensues like the chicken screaming, “the sky is falling, the sky is falling.” In this case, a loved one or friend will jump in and rescue the “Emoter” type, because it’s easy to think for someone else who gives you that power.
Today’s blog is to create awareness about how you function.
Are you the Detached Dan/Dolly type who avoids strong emotions, even allowing a loved one to act emotions out for you?
Or, are you the Emotional Molly/Max type who’s emotions overwhelm you, and you turn to someone else hoping they will think for you?
There’s more to come in the next few posts about the HOW TOs regarding Thinking and Feeling at the same time. Stay tuned.
Enjoy this day. It’s the only day that matters. Happy Trails, Allison
