One of the biggest mistakes we make are a result from our emotions and feelings being thrown into our decision making process. Most of the time, when we act on our emotions, we make poor partial choices. This is because our cognitive function is severely distorted when we augment an emotional factor. Our decision making process should be free from these emotions.
This is why when you’re in a sticky situation, your friends and even strangers, can offer the “best” advice. They’re not affected by the emotional component of the decision making thus they can think impartially.
We make mistakes so whatever happens isn’t unforgivable; however, you should try your best in avoiding emotional decision making.
