Taking Bait Leads to Trouble: Be Smarter Than Your Emotions
April 8, 2013 Leave a comment
Bait is an attempt to lure, tempt, entice or even distract, bribe or trap.
There’s a whole lot of space between adult rights to do, and making Grown decisions.
Think about how many times you’ve been baited, and ended up angry with yourself because somebody out-smarted you. They used something they knew would get your attention – which you would have a difficult time refusing.
If this list is long for you – if you’re not already tired – you’re going to get tired of playing the fool.
Bait appeals to the emotion. When you find an area where you are bait-able (or as I refer to as fuquitable), you’ve also found an area of weakness. When you are tempted it is wise to filter all bait through the mind, otherwise, remorse and/or regret, (or if you’re a real fool justification) will likely follow. Your untamed emotions will drive you into a ditch!
If after filtering through logic (sometimes you’ll need to use other people’s as a sounding board if yours has proven “ditch-bound”), you still choose to take the bait, make Grown decisions!
