From the Heart Doctor:(internet)
No, we shouldn’t be ruled by our feelings but God made us with feelings for a reason. They validate our existence and value and they help us know when harm is near.
“Answers to the comfort question also reveal why some people are so good at communicating while others have such difficulty. We are not born knowing how to understand and express what is inside our souls. That kind of knowing ourselves requires contemplation and reflection…Being fully known and understood requires we say aloud to someone else what is going on within our souls”
