Avoid Making Life Decisions Based on Emotions

Avoid Making Life Decisions Based on Emotions

Most decisions in life require that you to set aside your emotions and think logically and rationally. However, if you want your life to be “three sheets to the wind,” just make all your decisions based on your emotions. Your emotions are all over the map. One day you are up, and the next day you are down.

Riding the roller coaster of emotions to make decisions is a very bad idea. It has been interesting to note how the political spin doctors have taken over with an emotional flare. How in the world did they come up with the “war on women?”  There is no “war on women” and there never has been.  Of course it gets a lot of emotional women stirred up, especially when they

the stupidity of it all.

If there is a war on somebody it would be a “war on men.”  After all, men die younger than women. The statistics don’t lie.  On average women can be expected to live four years longer than men.  There are several theoretical reasons for the difference, but given the high stress levels in men, who are providing for their families, it should be no surprise.

And to top it off we are often just “boy toys’” in the eyes of the fairer sex.  Yep, the guys are just a piece of raw meet thrown to the cougars!  So chose wisely my friend.

When you mark your ballot think about all those other voters and the bad choices they have made in life.  I bet there are a lot of older Jimmy Carter voters who wish they had that one back.  At least taking back a vote for a stupid politician is easier than taking back the other bad choices we have made in life.  It’s a good thing bad votes don’t come with an alimony check or child support.
