Mind Versus Emotion
And the Winner Is?
A mentor in my inquiring adulthood once posed this question: Which is more powerful, mind over emotion or emotion over mind?
This was way before I could do an Internet search and have this answer pop up:
“Whereas logic is the language of the conscious mind, emotion is the language of the unconscious mind. We know that emotions are reactions to perceived and imagined stimuli, not based on logic, but on one’s own personal experiences. Emotions outweigh our logic.”
