The greatest battles of all time are not fought on land, air, or water. In fact, they are actually fought within the human body itself, between the two greatest opposing forces: the heart and the mind.
I don’t know how many other people face this, but I always have difficulties deciding whether to listen out to my heart or my mind.
The heart is guided by emotion and it always cries out its desires to do something that doesn’t make any sense at all. It just wants to do it, and once the desired result is achieved, though it may not be anything big or difficult, but just seeing it happen would bring loads of happiness and delirium.
The mind, on the other hand, is a soft subtle voice that always prefers something else. The mind makes decisions based on facts and common sense. It takes a lot of external factors into consideration which the heart totally ignores. (Eg. Time, money.) The mind, being very rational, always brings back the bad memories of past mistakes to remind the heart that it isn’t worth making the same mistake again.
If you are expecting a solution for this, I am sorry because I think there is nothing we can do about it. There is no way we can change how our heart and our mind works. They are meant to function this way.
I guess that’s why people in love always appear foolish and stupid, because they are always doing things that will never make any sense to other people who are watching them.
