Our heart can and does deceive us, but only because the feelings we have were there before we realized it and our minds didn’t have the same amount of time to process those feelings. I live by this idea. I feel the ways I do for a reason. For good or for bad is uncertain but as long as I feed the good I can expect SOMETHING good to come of those feelings. Why would my heart flutter when I see a certain person? It does it because something in me already knows of the goodness before my brain can comprehend. My heart can be tricked but it knows something my brain doesn’t. It knows that deep down there is a goodness that can be found. But sometimes you have to leap out on a limb and be vulnerable. And at the very least, be honest. Honesty has always worked for me. It may not get me what I want but it sure does make it hard to get things confused or assume things.
