Thoughts create emotions

There is a contemporary belief that emotions are special; that emotions are the gateway to the soul; that emotions tell us what thoughts and words can’t; and, that if we really want to know truth, we must consult our emotions.

There’s just one problem with this belief: there is no evidence to support it.

In fact, psychology research indicates that thoughts create emotions. If you think confident thoughts, you’ll start feeling confident; if you think lonely thoughts, you’ll start feeling lonely. If you want to feel a certain way,┬áit’s easy: just think that way first.
