A common error I see women make in relationships and other areas of life is mistaking emotions as facts.

Facts are truths that don’t change, stand up to scrutiny, and are widely understood. Emotions are feelings which are transient, often don’t stand up to reasoning, and differ from person to person.

When you are upset, stop and ask yourself if you are acting on emotion, or fact. A cooling off period will often shed light on the situation.

Most of all, beware making major life decisions based on emotions rather than fact.

What do you think? Can you give an example of yourself or someone else acting on emotions as if they were fact? What happened?
