follow your heart
whatever makes you happy
do what you want, when you want
do what makes you feel good
...and phrases of similar value. This I find troubling. Somewhere in my past I learned that my heart was not always the best barometer, especially in moments of intense stress. In fact I find that so much sorrow and major hurt has transpired because somebody thought they needed 'to follow their bliss'.
You know I am not talking about little issues here but choices that are earth shattering to you or the people around you.
"He who trusts in his own heart is a fool,
But whoever walks wisely will be delivered."
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths."
