“Don’t allow your mind to tell your heart what to do. The mind gives up easily”
― Paulo Coelho
Read this quote today, and it somehow resonated with me. I am not sure why.
I have been in plenty of situations where I have followed my head and not my heart, you know. The heart really does tell you what to do, but we as humans all have a knack of ignoring this and the mind often wins. We talk ourselves out of doing what is right, and listen to the “logical” side of our heads.
I have done it. We all have. I have witnessed it. As I am sure we all have. You know, things happen and shit hits the fan, but as long as you didn’t regret it at the time, you shouldn’t regret it now. Focus on being in the present and that everything will work out for the better.
Sometimes, the reassurance isn’t enough. But I truly believe that if we all listened to our hearts instead of rationalizing every single choice we make — even the illogical ones — we will be much happier people. To have all of the people in your life tell you that something is wrong means nothing if you believe that you are doing what you think is right. It might turn out that it wasn’t right, but if it made/makes you happy it is the right thing to do right now.
Don’t second guess yourself. Listen to yourself. Stop being your own worst enemy.
