Emotions are extremely powerful. They have the ability to impair our judgement, cloud our mind, and make us do things that we would never normally do. What if you were able to feel your emotions, but still have complete control of them? I know it sounds too good to be true, but let’s do some investigating.
We are going to look at one of the most powerful and potentially dangerous emotions.
What happens when you get angry?
Do you scream?
Say hurtful words?
All of the above?
Anger is a natural emotion. Every single person on this planet has felt anger at one time or another. Everyone reacts differently. Some may even turn to drugs and alcohol to stuff that emotion deep down inside of them so as to not feel the intensity of it. It holds so much power over many people and they don’t even realize it.
A perfect example is road rage. When someone cuts you off in traffic and you start cursing at them in your car, you just let that person’s actions have power over you. You also may speed up and try to cut them off to get revenge while possibly putting yourself or others in danger.
Is this rational?
Hell no it’s not.
Number one, they cannot even hear you, so why are you wasting your energy calling them unspeakable things?
Number two, you just lowered yourself trying to get revenge and could have gotten seriously hurt.
Let’s look at this situation free of any emotion whatsoever.
