I may be crazy, but I often attempt to reason out my emotions before making decisions. I try to understand WHY I am feeling a certain way before taking any further action.
Once I understand the motivations behind my emotions, I either embrace my gut, or, in other circumstances, realize my foolishness, and do the right thing according to logic. I think emotions can be dangerous… often, my emotions tell me to do something that will bring me short-term gratification, but won’t be good for me or other ppl in the long run. That’s why I think it’s important to let the emotion settle and understand the cause of it before you jump.
…And as much as it’s important to understand and question your emotions, I do admit to making a lot of decisions based on my gut… it’s quick and easy in situations where the decision at hand isn’t high risk.
