My Truth 365_47 – Head vs. Heart

I am a huge proponent of love and mercy. I believe in people, even if they do not believe in themselves.

Today, My Truth has to do with the conflict between my logical mind and my soft heart.

I am a huge proponent of love and mercy. I believe in people, even if they do not believe in themselves. I give the benefit of the doubt and will fight for someone to have the opportunity to make the best of a bad situation. I am not sure why I’m so overly empathetic – I just am. I root for the underdog on every occasion.

My head says, “Save yourself!” My heart says, “What if…?” If not careful, I become the underdog.

Well, today I realize that my way of being can be to my detriment. I have to know when to let go. My superhero complex has to take a backseat to logic. Some people are beyond saving or it’s simply not my responsibility. In fact, it is a total error in thinking. Finally, I get it. My distortion of love and what it means to be loyal is really the battle between my head and heart.

It’s ironic that I have struggled with this for so long. When someone else in a similar situation asks me for advice or coaching, I can easily be definitive in encouraging them to save themselves and follow the logical path. Yet, when it comes to me – I hesitate and “feelings” get in the way.

I am mindful of the need to change this about myself and it starts today.

  1. This truth is often at the mercy of your heart…and I know, the idea is to follow your head when it appears to be saying the right thing…but the heart has a way of getting in the way – even when you know it isn’t right. Great post.
