Tips for Living

2. Temper lust with love.

Explanation: There’s nothing wrong with lust. It is a human emotion. Just like with other emotions, you must not let lust solely control your actions. Do not base relationships on lust. Do not dismiss lust as an unnecessary emotion. The whole spectrum of feeling is necessary to be a complete person. To temper is to control. Control your lust for someone with your love for that person.

Living: Practice self-control. Listen to your partner. Respect your partner.

Importance: While one should not be totally ruled by their emotions, it is folly to totally ignore them. If you are totally emotional, you will make rash decisions. If you are totally unemotional, you may ignore and injure your heart someday. Although physical injuries are painful, it is emotional and mental injuries that take the longest time to heal.
