Heart Vs The Brain? Decide Who you follow!

Do you follow your heart or your brain? I follow my heart. The reasons why I follow my heart are myriads. For instant, if I follow my heart while making a decision I don’t regret it even if that decision proved to be wrong. Because that decision is what I really wanted. I know, human heart has nothing to do with emotions, actions or feelings, but I seriously believe that the heart has a strong connection with our emotions.

If you follow your brain, you are a wise person and in most case, decisions made by brains are pratical and more error free. But I perfer following my heart. Because I am a person who doesn’t not care what the world says, think or do. I live by my rules and if I listen to my brain, it always restricts me from doing stuffs that I really want to do. Since I only get to live once, I want to enjoy this life to the fullest, with no regrets. Imagine, you are almost broke and your favorite band comes to your town or city to perform for the first time. Naturally you heart will insist on seeing that show but your brain will restrict you as you won’t have any bucks after you buy that concert ticket. I know, if you listen to your brain and you will not worry about how you will survive the next day. But you will regret your whole damn life thinking that I should have seen that show after all money comes and go!

(My next point to prove that the heart is wiser than the brain includes examples that are senstive, I request you not to take it personally)

Coming to emotions, think you are in love with a women 10 years older than you. Your brain will sent out signals ordering you to leave that women. Not only signals but reasons why you should leave her. But what your brain does not know is, you like being with mature women, who are wiser than girls of your age and with more experience. As a wise person, you listen to your brain and finally hook up with an oversmart, insenstive, inmature girl of your age.

Talking of practicals, if great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Che Guevara, Abraham Lincoln and so on listened to their brain, the world would have been much different. These great people listened their heart and fought for what they believed, the result, they changed the whole course of human history. If they had followed their brain, they would have never started a revolution as their brain would signal them the consequences of starting a revolution and all the hardship that they would face.

Just one thing, the watch which was invented by brain ticks only 60 times in a minute but your heart beats (average) 70 times a minute….
