The Inertia of Emotion

Sounds like a good book title, doesn’t it? But it’s really just a concept, at least, for now.

See, emotion does have inertia. If you’re used to thinking of yourself as inadequate in some area, for example, it takes serious work to overcome that and get your thoughts working in a different direction. The emotion at rest tends to stay at rest; the emotion in motion (okay, now we’re rapping, go with it!) tends to stay in motion.

If you can force yourself to think about your ways as good ways, your heart as a good heart, your time well spent, your efforts worth the work… then once you get started, it takes less work to keep feeling that way. Give it a try.
