4 tips on how to deal with the heart & brain battle

When it comes to your dreams, business, your passions, follow your heart. When it comes to matters in dealing with friends, family, lovers, this is where the heart and brain begin to battle. My advice to you, from past experiences, listen to the brain when it comes to affairs of the heart.

I pride myself on my cold and calculating personality when it comes to making decisions. People who know me very well changed my middle name from Ann to Asshole. I’m okay with that. Once in a while, my heart will melt. I am only human. When it does melt I’m kicking myself in the ass every time! It only happens once or twice a year, thank the Heavens for that! But it does happen.

The heart feels. The brain foresees. The brain knows the negative impact you will endure after the action you were contemplating is completed.

You will thank your brain in the long run, instead of second-guessing your action and feeling like a fool for following your heart.

When you’re contemplating an action which is based on feelings;

  1. Don’t make that decision when you’re feeling vulnerable,
  2. When your mood may be a little out of balance.
  3. Be patient and wait it out.
  4. During the waiting period, meditate and visualize the outcome you want to happen

That wait and visualization will be the best thing for you.

I recently experienced the heart and brain battle. I felt that my seize the moment may have past.  This was a heart moment. I thought I may never have the chance to say how I felt with a gentleman I would see at the supermarket every week. I never followed through in asking him out. An affair of the heart.

I was able to think through the outcome of my intended actions. I decided that my actions would’ve had a negative outcome if I would’ve listened to my heart. I ended up seeing him with I would assume was his girlfriend since they were holding hands.

He also spoke in terms as he was single. He was very misleading in his word choice. Ladies and Gentlemen really pay attention to what people are saying. You may be able to pick up on something that will tell you to leave it alone. It was my brain telling me don’t do it.

One day I’ll meet my special person. I’m not rushing it. I have hope and patience on my side.

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come. ~~ Robert H. Schuller
