Something I realized this morning as an individual. Who knows, maybe it will work for you as well?
There is a reason I attempt to shed the confining aspects of a solely emotional existance and embrace the rather freeing effects of logical rationality in my daily approach to life.
While rejected as cold and heartless by some, I am far freer a person as a result of this then if I subjected myself to the daily self abuse that accompanies endless emotional rollercoasters.
By rejecting my standard emotional responses as inadequate I am better able to adjust my perspective to suit the needs of the day. Regardless pain type; psychological, mental or physical. By approaching my life and all that it entails, interactions and actions as well as reactions, with a logical demeanor I am less likely too engage in harmful behavior and more likely to engage in beneficial behaviors
Free the mind and the body will follow
