the mind or the heart?

Whenever i look at him i see an X in my mind but a big fat happy yes in my beating heart. The motto everyone say is “follow your heart”, but why would i follow my heart if it only leads me to heartbreak, loving the wrong person, aches and missing. But those little feelings in me will never change even though i decide to follow the mind, you know the typical love feelings : the happiness forming that shy smile on my face, the butterflies i feel in my stomach and even my heart racing. How come that one person can make you feel that special just looking into your eyes. What should i follow the mind or the heart?

  1. As I read this, I remembered a post from Andrei’s blog: https://viewpointsofandrei.com/2016/11/18/thoughts-and-quotes-thewayoftheheart/

    I commented this, and would say the same here:

    When I was younger, I used to believe in that saying “Follow your heart”.. but as I grew older, I realized it was wiser to use my head as well.

    We cannot teach our heart what to feel, but we can do what is better for us according to what we know from the circumstances. It’s much safer this way. Always following our hearts could lead to rash actions because our emotions are always changing.

    It is better to rationalize what our actions should be, while taking our heart into consideration too… a sort of balance through it all.

      1. Well sometimes, there’s no arguing with the heart. If you listen to the mind a bit though… it may save you from a whole lot of pain. Although, you may also not experience the good. I guess you have to decide if taking the risk is worth it. 🙂
