Yes, I agree. My relationships have deepened and I have so much more happiness in my life since I learned to treat emotion as being of equal validity to logic.
The problem I see is that people view them as opposites and as somehow incompatible. I have found this to be far from the truth.
It's not that logic and emotion need to be balanced against each other, but that they need to work together.
At least, that's how it works for me.
