Thanks, Sameh! I’m glad that you found it relatable.

Well, we have a Thinking Brain and a Feeling Brain. And despite the fact that we want our Thinking Brain to be in the driver seat, usually, that’s not the case. Our feelings drive us towards different desires, and the only thing we can do is accept that and try to understand why. That’s when our Thinking Brain comes into play to rationalize our actions driven by emotions. Make no mistake, it’s a struggle, and it will take time to find the right path.

These thoughts are coming from Mark Manson, though, who I cited in my article. His observations and contemplations are thought-provoking, I recommend you to check out his books, you might find them helpful.

Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts!
