Not regarding lemmy support (c/lemmy_support)
not ad nauseam inducing (please make sure its a question that would be new to most members)
The world would be a much simpler place if we all took a deep breath and admitted to ourselves and others that we are not purely rational beings, never were, never will be, aren’t meant to be.
“Logic and Reason” are useful tools, but treating them as the end-all-be-all of everything is foolhardy at best.
Plus, the more “rational” you claim to be (aka, the more you reject your own emotions and refuse to accept and understand them because you think emotions are for others), the more likely you are to make decisions that are, in fact, not rational at all but that you’ve convinced yourself are the logical thing. Our rational brains are incredibly good at coming up with reasonings for our emotional responses that make sense to us but wouldn’t actually hold up to scrutiny.
