I am a smart girl. I excel in logic. I can argue either side of an issue, and I bet by the end I can make you agree with me.
On the flip side, I am a hopeless romantic (emphasis on hopeless). I listen to my heart over my head Every…Single…Time. I put myself out there more than I ‘should’. I usually give people more chances then they logically deserve. I see things through to the bitter end because I hold out hope things will work out.
I believe that the right person can overcome the worst circumstances. I believe that if you care about someone, you will help them follow their dreams, whatever they may be, and wherever they may take them…even if it’s away from you. I believe that people are generally good, and that our flaws - those sometimes ugly parts of us - do not define all of who we are but make us more interesting.
I believe that doing what makes you happy is always worth it – and that you should never make a decision based on fear. I believe that the fear of suffering is always worse than the suffering itself.
I’m definitely not perfect – I mess things up just as much as the next person; I worry about making the right choices; I make the wrong ones; I get depressed when things don’t work out. I’m sure my friends and family would rather I listen to my head (and them) more, especially since they have to listen to my tears first hand when things don’t work out.
But I will continue to listen to my heart. Even if people think it’s stupid, even if sometimes I KNOW I’m being stupid, even if it ends up hurting.
By listening to my heart instead of my head, I have probably given myself more trouble than if I ‘played it safe’. When you look at it that way, it’s definitely not so logical. But you know what? I have lived much more deeply, learned so much…and have absolutely no regrets.
