Our emotions have everything to do with our internal workings. Unless we deal with our emotional cognitive framework, which comprises our emotional understanding of the world, other people and ourselves, what we try to achieve will never work.
We can never expect to make headway, make important decisions without dealing with our emotions first. It is our emotions that govern our behaviour, how we communicate, what we think about ourselves, how well we adapt into our lives and how easily we go on to make those all-important decisions.
When we lack clarity based around our emotions, we will always have uncertainties based around our choices. We cannot expect to function well on any level, unless we understand and put our emotions in order.
