A few months ago I was watching something on TV (I can't remember the name of the program), but the topic discussed focused on how people tend to make decisions based on emotion rather than logic. It made me stop and think, do I make more emotional decisions? Nobody is pefect, but for the most part I try to make decisions based on what is right for my overall wellbeing.
Age typically comes wisdom and growth. I don't see life the way I did at 24 as I do now at 34. Sure I view a few things the same, but I also view things differently.
I ask myself quite often when it comes to decisions how will this effect my future or how will this better my future etc. If something or someone is not going add something meaningful to my life then I need to stay clear of it. I made a promise to myself that I would protect my inner peace more.
In the past I stayed in relationships and friendships long beyond their expiration date. It's okay to outgrow friendships. Some relationships should have never developed in the first place (only speaking for myself), but I'm sure someone reading can relate.
Emotional decision making can lead to negative results. For example if you're mad, you may say something out of anger that you don't mean and hurt someone's feelings. If you were to take the time to cool of you may have chosen to handle the situation differently. Honestly I think it's hard not to make some decisions without being emotional involved. We're all human, but I try not to let my emotions get the best of me when making decisions.
