HEART vs HEAD

This battle is epic. Heated passions of the burning heart vs rational calculations of the powerful mind. An unfortunate side effect of the human condition, whether you are male or female. Internal arguments. Push and pull. Logic and emotion. Endless tumbling and jockeying for position. One on top, then the other. It’s exhausting!

When the heart wins, emotions rule your life. The beaten brain gives up and corrosion of conformity follows.

When the brain wins, logic rules. The poor heart then becomes jaded and bitter.

We simply cannot escape this battle, my precious girl, because no one is immune and separating the two would be sudden death of the organism.

In the end, the heart wants what the heart wants even when the brain knows better. In my own experience, heart trumps brain about 90% of the time and I’m NOT one who allows emotions to run my life. I’m a thinker; a gatherer of facts and data. Still, when my heart calls the hand, my brain folds.

I miss you, my girl.

    Lovely. The balance between heart and mind is really what determines who you are in life. It may even be difficult to decipher the two at times, like nature vs. nurture. I think that finding peace within the two establishes true self wisdom. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
