This is an interesting equation to me.
This subject has come up many times during this case. If you have a passionate viewpoint (even if that view is based on facts, not emotion) you are labeled “emotional” or “foolish”.
I become passionate when trying to get the facts, as I know them, across to others who may think they know better. Maybe it’s a character flaw of mine? I go so far as questioning a doctor’s say so, because they are only human and can make mistakes.
I will always be my own strongest advocate because I educate myself when I don’t know something.
Does this make me emotional? Maybe? I like to call it logical and rational. I guess passion is an emotion, so I suppose I must also be emotional.
