How to think logically and not emotionally?
Life is tremendously difficult when we try to think with our emotions. That’s why it’s always best to take a step back and think about the situation. Usually, this type of thinking requires we delay gratification, regroup, and gather ourselves. Now, most of us, including me, don’t fancy spending the time to think things through, but it’s important to be patient because the serious of the situation can mean the difference between making a good decision or a bad one.
It is so easy to respond to others immediately when we first receive a text message or any kind of message. The hard thing to do is to wait to respond. Think about it.
I’m contemplating giving into reading a text message as well as responding to the conversation for fear I may open a Pandora’s box with someone who is not going to get me to where I need to go in life. They say you should surround yourself with the right kinds of people. Don’t hang around losers! The best thing you and I can do is to be ourselves by setting the example, and then our followers will understand and react.
Thinking logically, as they say in math class, is all about keeping emotions out of the mix, and instead relying on principles and mathematics to come to a solution. Humans are no different because are emotional creatures, but we are also thinkers. Thinking logically calls for a certain type of person to think a certain type of way.
Nobody is going to be there to hold your hand, and you are required to make decisions for yourself; somewhere down the line. The last thing I want for you is to feel anger towards someone because you chose to hang around the wrong kind of person. It is sad and breaks my heart to see so many good people choosing to interact, and engage with the wrong folks. Basically, it is going to bring us displeasure and dissatisfaction to interact with people we will later regret because it looks tempting at first to please others.
If you try to please everyone you end up pleasing no one
Relationships are tricky! They can be distracting and be interrupting of our normal day to day behaviors and disciplines. It amuses me how I have been guilty of letting others agitate me to the point where the rest of my day is now ruined because I chose to keep talking talk to them.
How to be more patient with yourself?
To avoid slipping into a rage with others, I recommend controlling your excitement, eruption, bitterness, and passion. The reason for taming ourselves is because we are focusing on improving our lives, and focusing on getting where we need to go. One of the most reliable techniques I have used in my life to be patient with myself is hitting the gym, and lifting some weights. Truly, working out with weights has me relaxed, and channeling my fury, madness, and insanity towards other people.
Being patient is not easy when we want to release the wrath of GOD onto another human being for disrespecting us or shaming us wrongfully as mere examples.
With many of us having our own trials, doubts, concerns, and worries its no wonder why we have a heck of a time practicing patience with ourselves. We have to learn to let go, and love ourselves again; the right way. We are only here for a short period of time so let us make the best of ourselves in every situation. There is no reason to feel a sense of scarcity, horror, or even nightmare because life is good, and we have the ability to direct and control our minds to whatever end we choose to focus.
Forgive others and you will be forgiven
Forgiving others is not easy but it is worth it to practice the art and science. There countless amounts of people who have screwed me over, but I never let them get to me psychologically because if I do let them have me there in the mind; I’m toast as they say because what are we if we don’t have possession of our mind. What a beautiful thing to forgive others! I’m fairly certain they do not teach forgiveness in schools. That’s okay you can learn today.
When it comes to forgiving others I make a partial attempt to foresee another’s point of view. I visualize with the other may be going through in life, and adjust my thoughts and discussions accordingly. I need to know with conviction and complete certainty I am who I am, and my decisions are mine to own. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with being humble and obedient and to surrender to others when the occasion calls for the practice. Nonresistance can be a lifesaver in terms of playing it smart, and avoiding unnecessary confrontation with people who quite frankly are ignorant, aggressive, and unwilling to compromise.
This goes back to hanging around the right kinds of people.
