Quotes You Should Stop Quoting: Part 3
“Follow your heart; let your heart be your guide”
Yes, sometimes we should listen to our hearts, but most of the time our hearts don’t guide us towards the best path. I think the better piece of advice is to “follow your heart, but take your brain with you.” When we look to our feelings and emotions to make the decisions we usually fail to see the consequences that could result from our choices. We see what we want to happen instead of what will most likely happen. Our emotions make us human and definitely contribute to a life worth living, but they can also blind us. In the same way, we cannot completely ignore our feelings as they are an important part of our humanity. We must feel pain, joy, fear, excitement, curiosity, and go through many phases in our lives in order to create ourselves and learn how to make wiser choices for our future. But just remember that life is not always about what we want or following a feeling. Sometimes the best decisions can break our hearts, but eventually the pain will heal. Life is a journey filled with endless decisions that are not always the easiest to make, but with a little logic, a dash of heart and the courage to take a chance, we can overcome our obstacles.
