    When your heart is torn, there's no way to know for sure what to do.

    So make the best decision you can (using all available faculties), and then follow it. Don't second-guess or blame yourself later. You made a choice, accept that and believe in it. It makes no sense to make a decision that you continue to regret; if that is the case, you should have made a different decision.

    (so there's an instance where, even if you realize one decision might be easier/better in most ways, if you know you can't live with that decision long-term, then it's not the best decision for you. You have to be able to LIVE with your decision.)

    Some decisions do lock out possibilities. But no decision is utterly exclusive and permanent. If you realized you goofed, look at your current options... then make a new decision.

    You are never trapped or ruined for life. Usually we are caged only by our own expectations and unwillingness to change certain things.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Exactly, but one doesn't make a decision WANTING to regret it. That is the whole point behind second-guessing and getting advice and sayings like "don't put all your eggs in one basket" "hasty decision" etc.

    Me and mine are not on speaking terms. Kind of hard to follow then.

    Mine is screaming in my ear, but dispite my bleeding ears it's not quite practical to follow yet.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Sounds pessimistic, but I say, "Don't follow your heart, it only works for other people."
    I am half-kidding. But only half.

    The first half of this is pretty good. It touches a little on evolutionary instinctual feeling rather than some spiritual hoojiwhat.

    The short simple answer is to let your heart be your compass and your head be your map. Your heart knows the direction that will make you content with your life, while your head can chart the course to get there.

    Well for me knowing what my heart wants has always been hard. I realized after a lot of reflection that this is what I was doing. Somehow I end up burying my desires or maybe I wasn't in touch with them to begin with. Secondly for some reason I became afraid of getting what I wanted. The more I wanted something, the more afraid I was of getting it. All of this was on an unconscious level. On a conscious level whenever confronted with the thing I wanted I would come up with all sorts of reasons against it. Consciously it seemed rational, but unconsciously it stemmed from fear. At some point I started confronting myself on these things and simply took some leaps of faith. So far these leaps of faith have worked out pretty well.

    I don't know if my "heart" is speaking to me or if I am obsessed. If I heard right, where its telling me to go seems to be impossible (and incredibly scary).

    But right now, I have a convoluted plan to get there. Right now, either my head is failing my heart, or both are failing my soul.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
