Imagination and Emotion

This pair can be a dangerous combination in my experience. Without the interuption of the self to direct the process or the intellect to limit its range, the emotions and imagination will easily enter into feedback loops, either of increasingly optimistic ideas which make me feel good but can lead to disappointment, or conversely more and more outrageous "worst case" scenarios that bring me down.

Letting either loop run out of control witll then waste a fair amount of effort "disproving" the more insane concepts to allow me a more balanced view of my life.

Personally I'm not sure there really is any valid use to letting these two "talk" without moderation!
