Today’s Word: subside

March 23, 2018 =========

☆  subside  落ち付く


When something, such as your feelings or emotions, subsides, they become less strong or less intense. The useful phrase this week is: Don’t make a decision until your feelings subside. In other words, if you have a tough decision to make, you are probably feeling lots of strong emotions. If you make a decision while you are feeling all these strong emotions, it’s easier to make the wrong decision, so it’s best to wait until those strong feelings subside before making your decision.

What do you think of this advice? Are you the sort of person who makes their best decisions while you are feeling emotional, or do you prefer to wait for your emotions to subside like this advice suggests?
