The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Emotional reasoning is a negative thinking pattern that can best be described as the process of turning feeling into fact. We cannot control how we feel but we can control what we do with these feelings and when we turn our feelings into fact we can find ourselves in a made up reality. Being aware of when you engage in emotional reasoning can help you shift out of this way of thinking and bring you back into a position of knowing that a feeling is sometimes just a feeling.


Emotional Reasoning: When we turn our feelings into fact. Try to catch yourself when “I feel XXX”, becomes “I am XXX” : such as, “I feel incompetent” becomes “I am incompetent.” Remember to tell yourself that a feeling is just a feeling, or use the phrase, “I’m having the feeling that I am incompetent” so that you get separation from the emotion.
