Lies


Emotional needs can't be rationalized.  They need to be acknowledged.  Acknowledging feelings is not equivalent to indulging them.  Indulging feelings isn't always (ever?) the right thing to do.  What action can be taken after acknowledging your feelings when they are painful ones and you want to heal?  Is acknowledgment sufficient?

Strangely, none of this changes my answer.  I am still wont to respond with the former, yes, yes, yes and YES, in spite of how wrong it is.

There are the things that we consciously believe, and then there are the lies we tell ourselves to live with ourselves.
