Newton and Emotions

Newton’s First Law:  A body at rest tends to stay at rest and a body in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an external force.

Considering this natural law in terms of my feelings and relationships told me that if I kept doing what I’d been doing, I’d keep getting what I’d been getting. If I kept heading in the same direction, I’d stay on the same path and keep feeling the same way I was feeling. Or, “If nothing changes, NOTHING changes.” If I wanted to change my life, I had to do something different. In other words, this first attempt to relate a scientific principle to emotions. This is a logical principle  applied to emotions!
