“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” — Winston Churchill
What if you spoke to yourself and yourself answered in a different language?
Feelings and intellect are different ways of engaging with the world and we poorly translate between them. Everyone knows this, yet hardly anyone works to reconcile the differences. Perhaps we don’t understand the differences ourselves.
Our solution is to celebrate the intellect and denigrate our emotions. We keep our emotions in check and we tell ourselves they’re under control. It is starting to be recognized that this is a fallacy and that our intellect rides on our emotions. The intellect keeps emotions out of the front office, but your emotions have a key to the back door.
