The misguided emotional breakdown is when our soul is governed by emotions that cause us to believe that our feelings over-power the reality of what is morally correct. It’s like coming to the conclusion that what I desire right now, whether wrong or not, is what I want and what I need.
This misguided emotional breakdown often occurs when ignored lust or physical desire is not dealt with, and put into proper perspective. In reality, it's when our emotions have been put in charge of our actions and we become subjected to prideful living and the lack of self-control.
Have you ever had a friend that’s so deeply infatuated with a man who is already married? She often talks about him, how she’s falling in love with him, and how she knew that he was the one for her. Then eventually you’ll hear her say, “I know it’s wrong, but I love him.”
It is at this point, she has fixated her mind to believe that an opportunity to show him her love would cause him to reevaluate his marital status. So if given the chance not only will she allow these emotions to control her actions, she will justify her actions in her heart and mind. Soon, she becomes misguided and blind by immoral behavior caused by an emotional breakdown.
