Don’t Let Your Feelings Boss You Around
I feel the need to bust into the 1974 Morris Albert song: “Feelings, nothing more than feelings . . . whoa-oa-oa, feelings!”
Anyone else in G+ land got that little tune stuck in their head now? It’s a simple song, and was even once named one of the worst songs of all time, but there’s truth in those lyrics.
It’s so important to understand our feelings. We need to recognize that they truly are indicators of where our heart is at any given moment, but they're only temporary. They don’t have to determine who we are -- and they definitely shouldn’t dictate how we behave.
We can use our feelings to better understand how a situation is affecting us, but they should never be the basis for our actions.
Our feelings are just that – nothing more than feelings. We may feel hopeless, but that doesn’t mean we are hopeless. We may feel angry, but that doesn’t mean we need to act in anger. Our feelings are not the boss of us -- it’s time to let them know that. #howifeel #feelings #kurtstips
