    I Wish My Brain And Heart Could Agree

    I just wish that every once in a while my brain and heart would be in agreement. Instead I'm consumed by the never ending rival between what my heart feels, and what my brain is telling me I should do. Their arguing drives me crazy.

    Gods Yes.

    There would be so much less internal conflict if one or the other could simply...take over sometimes. Problem is, they both want what they want...which is usually the complete opposite.   Brain will be telling me to "Be logical. This doesn't compute, and you're only going to...

    Would Be Nice

    I've always followed my heart, and it has usually led exactly where I thought it would. I would really like it if I could get my heart to listen to what my mind is saying.
