Logic And Reason vs. The Immovable Iron Curtain Of Emotion
Sometimes when you find yourself on the logic and reason side of an argument, which is hopefully most of the time, you have to learn when to pack it up and call it a day. Because at some point you enter into the territory of hurt feelings and worse when the side of emotion feels they are being attacked or ganged up on. It is up to those of us who value logic and reason to recognize this, and then politely change the subject. Yeah, I know this is a counterintuitive, because after all, if not for logic and reason how will we ever solve problems and move forward. But when you encounter the immovable iron curtain of emotion, there is no amount of logic and reason that will overcome.
