Emotions are evolved for one specific purpose, to help us live and reproduce a little bit better. They are feedback mechanism telling us that something is either likely right or likely wrong for us- nothing more, nothing less. Much as the pain of touching a hot stove teaches you not to touch it again, the sadness of being alone teaches you not to do the things that made you feel alone. Emotions are simply biological signals designed to nudge you in the direction of beneficial change.
Negative emotions are call to action. When you feel them, its because you are supposed to do something. Positive emotions on the other hand are rewards for taking the proper action. When you feel them, life seems simple and there is nothing else to do but enjoy it.
Emotions are part of the equation of our lives, but not the entire equation. Therefore we shouldn’t always trust our own emotions. In fact we should make a habit of questioning them.
