The Fog of Moods
If we get lost in the fog of “moods,” the most dangerous thing we can do is justify our fears and angers or justify our right to keep them. Choosing life requires that we walk the opposite direction so that we do not become emotionally crippled. The emotionally crippled person needs a crutch. Just as the alcoholic finds relief in alcohol and the addict finds release in drugs, the “moody” feed on feelings while their negative emotions and behavior patterns continue to draw more fire.
