hapakun saidSo my therapist told me that I had to quit listening to my brain and listen to my emotions. I was floored by this because I always thought emotional people were irrational. I am still trying to figure out what she meant by it. I am sure she is talking about being in the gray area somewhere.
I have some feelings about the topic... mostly pained.
I've no idea what a fellow shrink said exactly, but what you took away is a questioning of your stance towards emotions. Emotion over logic? Well, there are thoughts and feelings, emotional processes and rational processes. I'd say, above all, trying to prioritize one way over the other, or attempting to denigrate one in service of the other is to deny the wisdom of the both.
"Its a fool that looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart."
