feelings do have logic behind them, we just aren't immediately aware of the logic all the time. Sometime you have to think about why you feel a certain something is right or wrong, but doesn't mean you don't have a thought process. The thought process of very often subconscious.

this is why listening to your feelings is important, but also analyzing them too.

It's the other way around. Logic is informed by emotions and feelings -- only logic is an attempt at normalizing behavior. "Don't feel this way, because that is illogical, and therefore bad."

I wish I could experience things as easily as you all seem to want to portray it. I spend most of my time feeling rather manic and borderline on the verge of tears like 24/7. I certainly do analyze my thought process, but that's not going to stop the fact that I'm impulsive.
