Your Heart Verses Your Head—Which One Do You Trust? | The Everygirl
You've probably heard it so many times "Follow your heart". your relationship and your safety, it would be wise to listen to your head, not just. For many years of my life, I didn't know how to follow my heart. And as a result, my quality of life and relationships was mediocre at best often. Choosing to follow your heart is a bold statement to make, but what does it to make the action to spy (a sign of mistrust) and that damages the relationship;.
In my emotional heart I may fear, I may want to avoid something, or I may long for something, desire it. In my energetic heart, the response will not be based on any sense of fear, avoidance, lack, or insufficiency.
It is based in a consistent, integral sense of Self, in relationship to others, to the world, and to life itself. I used to be afraid of confrontation, or even of risking a confrontation by displeasing people.
I had the usual reaction: Having to take this action and tell them caused me a lot of anxiety. I was afraid of the anger and rejection I felt certain would come of it. I delayed and avoided.
When I did tell them, I was met with confusion, anger, and blame. The response I feared did happen. I was okay…We were okay. It made my relationship stronger because my wife knew I would take her needs seriously, and act on them, even though it was uncomfortable for me. It made me stronger, because it helped me to realize that even if I made other people unhappy, I could still be okay.
Letting go of fear opened me up to growth. The more you practice decision-making in this way, the more you develop an incredible sense of freedom, an ability to move in this world in a way that is true to yourself and to your life purpose. And when making your decisions becomes clearer, less stressful, and less conflicted, it makes your relationships with others a lot easier. You may be afraid that if you act according to your heart, you will make people angry.
