How is it that one can receive 15-18 years of formal education and not one course on emotional self control?
When emotions get out of control, i.e. anger, jealousy, etc. , ethics, which has its foundation in logic, and reason, really takes a hit, a backseat, or not a consideration at all. Only when the emotions are no longer the modus operandi, do ethics now become a consideration and more times than not, too late.
To not control one’s emotions is a choice one makes when what one feels is more important than what one thinks. To rank and rave, yell, snub, ignore, etc., are results of emotions that are not controlled.
Maybe it’s because there has been no training, as to how to do just that, i.e. control, and re-channel those emotions.
Remember that one can’t control what one feels, but one ALWAYS can control how one acts and that no one can make you feel anything without your permission. Yet when you think about this,aren’t most of the “differences” at work, emotion-based and they affect morale, work productivity, work relationships, people’s self esteem, etc.
This is quite a price to pay, no matter what the excuse.
