Emotions can master our minds, take over our lives, and destroy our future. It is up to you to deal with your emotions while learning how to command and master the emotions. The emotions are human makeup that stems from natural inborn sources, while as the emotions grow (birth - child - adult) the emotions learn, believe, misconceive, disbelieve, teach, lie, deceive, etc. The emotions are powerful, since emotions stem from the hearts learning as well, which the heart is deceptive. This is where fact-finding comes into play, since if you do not have facts you will lack confidence, self-esteem, self-assurance, self-trust, self-respect, and all those other words that make a human being whole. This brings us to problems. The problems include acting on impulses, becoming angry, experience sadness, emptiness, and the like. Most times when you hear of alcoholism, drug additions, nicotine additions, criminal minds, psychological problems, and the like you are hearing about people who have not mastered their mind to command their emotions.
