I used to view humans as rational beings who are corrupted by emotions. With more experience and research, I have come to realize that humans are emotional beings who occasionally think rationally. Emotions are real and ever present. The ability to properly evaluate and understand our own emotions will allow us to use our intelligence to properly address the varying situations we may encounter throughout the day. Ignoring emotions or failing to understand their impact on our life will prevent us from making rational decisions which will impede our growth.
