Emotions are what make us human. They create the fuel for our actions. Our emotions are innate to our humanity and we can’t get away from them. However, as valuable as they are, they can also be very detrimental.
There are times that you just don’t want emotions involved. They will get in the way, escalate a situation, and negatively impact your decisions.
