So I tell my counselor that if I had to place a wager of any magnitude on a decision that I had make using solely my emotions that I would not do it, and that I was begining to think I was emotionally retarded (for lack of a better term).
He laughed and said he had been trying to tell me as such for a few months now. I've been called blunt, crass, and even cold many times throughout my life, but I never thought I would be paralyzed in decision making because of this, because I never believed that there were such things as decisions that had to be made soley with emotions, and that could not be setup in a spreadsheet.
So, my homework is to develop my connectivity with my emotions so that I can become a better developed person.
I have been taksed to ask myself questions (and answer them) such as:
"How do I feel right now?"
"Why do I feel this way?"
"What in my past might be pre-disposing me to have these feelings?"
Does this homework I've been assigned seem to be of potential benefit?
Any other tactics that might work?
Any that might work really quickly, maybe a video, or even a few bullet points?
I'm officially a FEEL-o-tard!!!
