YOUR LIFE A-Z: REASON
DON'T JUST LISTEN TO PINK CATS ALONG THE WAY
REASON is a mental exercise that requires analytical thought and tedious dissection however; REASON often ends up attached to emotion. If you want to understand this concept of emotion and REASON just try to REASON with an adolescent. Nope, the fine art of analytical thought is lost on an adolescent. REASON is also lost on those who have their mind made up about a particular issue. Drop the discourse. REASON is out the window. But then again, what makes your REASON right in the first place? REASON is tricky and often times we do not stop to evaluate the logic of it, or how we came to defend it in the first place. A jury must convict on “beyond a REASONABLE” doubt. That is not easy to do because there are some many perceptions of what happened, when it happened or how it happened. Is your REASON for doing something, thoughtfully and logically beyond a REASONABLE doubt? Have your wrestled with your logic and asked yourself heart-searching questions about “what is it that makes you believe this to be true?” It is important to you and to those that you love that you have the courage to REASON with your own logic, ideas, and attitudes and choose REASON in a gentle and co-operative manner. It is important to say, “I have my REASON and you are welcome to have yours.” Know why you believe what you do but do not feel a need to defend it. If someone is asking you to defend, feel free to REASONABLY decline. If someone is curious then you can share your REASON if it feels safe.
