Helping our patients to reconcile the conflict between the thinking and feeling mind

I often see folks who struggle with their feeling and thinking mind.

The thinking mind disagrees, argues, or fights with the feeling mind, and never seem to come to a good resolve. For these specific folks, the feeling mind wins in the end. The thinking mind gives in to the feeling mind.

It’s common. 

Part of counseling is to help people resolve that. Know when to listen to our feeling minds, and when to ignore and override it with the thinking mind. 

Have you ever had that struggle?
