I can say with 100% confidence that we have all made at least one decision based on feelings. I am also just as confident that some of those decisions, just like my own, ended badly. And with the passing of time, it was discovered that the feelings used to make the decision were wrong.
A motto that I have lived by for many years and that was birthed out of a rash of wrong decisions is “feelings are not fact.” It has become some of the best advice that I give myself. It really is a great rule of thumb for all of us to live by. However, I have recently wondered what happens when feelings are fact. How should one react when the way you have been feeling is confirmed to be a fact?
