The last time I talked about anything that concerns the matter of the heart or something more personal was two years ago. I stopped talking about it because I felt like it is quite embarrassing to talk about my personal problems to all of you who actually come and read my blog post.
Now, then, why am I writing something quite personal? well because maybe I want to share my misery to all of you guys or maybe because I think you will find it helpful and grow from it. As a young guy, I have been into quite a lot of relationships as my sister has actually pointed out. (yes, she counted) I have also struggled someway or another about what my heart is telling me and what my mind is. Most of the time I follow the heart, it seem to bring me to a place of satisfaction even though the mind detects a red flag. Lately, I have been talking to a person who has everything you might want in a person and in a relationship. Caring, Sweet, Thoughtful, understanding, and most of all walks the extra mile for you. However, the mind has been detecting red flags,the mind has been telling me that no one can be too good to be true, it has been telling me that there is no way this person exist, and that this person is either just playing with my feelings. But then if I was the typical me, I’d be going with my heart and maybe fall hard for this person, but after couple of heart breaks I think I’m learning now.
What am I learning? Well, I am learning to keep some guards up and to control my emotions, I am learning to keep something for myself and not just fall flat in love with a person. A lot of people keep telling everyone to follow the heart or just follow the mind but honestly, why chose which one to follow if you can follow both? Following both mind and heart will allow you to enjoy Love and at the same time spare you from being hurt too badly. So with the frequent question of which one to follow? i say both.
