heart over intellect

Don’t let your intellect overpower your heart. We can be logical as much as we want but there are times when we need to act in accordance with our hearts.

In order to understand other people, sometimes reading their minds is not enough. We need to read their hearts too.

We all do actions that are not wise and go against our best knowledge, but we still do them because that is what our heart demands us to do.

Reading and listening to our hearts and others’ is a skill that only the rare amongst us have. It’s okay to follow your heart sometimes. Even if it may lead you through forests of pain, at least you’ll never come across the beast of regret.

Our intellect can serve us brilliantly in our lifetime, but when we master the ability to decode the language of heart — as juvenile it may seem — we add meaning and impact to our lives and others’.
