Like it or not emotions rule your decisions to a great extent. It’s not uncommon to see value centered individuals go against their value systems to meet some of their unmet driving emotional needs. They take enormous risks just to have them fulfilled and if they are not they may turn into depression, irritability, bitterness, and narcissism.

We believe only those lies that give us something we greatly desire.
Liars succeed because they study your desires before you do.” – Wordions
