Are you driven by your head or your heart? Or maybe by something else? How do you balance the conflicting forces for how to be?

12 Aug

I’m sure you’ve heard the adage, “I was thinking with my heart and not my head.” At some point in our lives, I think we can all relate to this. Maybe a relationship we should have walked away from, but for some reason we made the decision to stick it out a little while longer; we’re not quite sure why, but for some reason we were compelled to hang in there. Maybe we loaned a friend or relative money and deep down inside we know that we shouldn’t have, but there was something that we could not quite explain that compelled us to loan money to someone who we know we should not have. So, how do you balance the conflicting forces for how to be? I once heard someone say, “let your conscience be your guide.” Relatively speaking this is true – we should make decisions that we can live with. Decisions that will not torment or be a burden to us as we move forward. The dilemma, however is do I make the decision with my head or with my heart?
