So a friend of mind had the following on her msn name: “What makes a man walk away from his mind?”
It’s a lyric from the City and Colour song “What Makes a Man”.
Since she said to me “Think about it…” I have been and it’s been really bugging me. Just thinking about what it could possibly mean. Definitely there are different interpretations, but for me, I think that line means what makes a man stop thinking with his head and start thinking with his heart? I know that many times our heart says one thing and our head says another, and our heart is usually what we want to do while our head is what we know we should do (to avoid spending money, time, taking a big risk, etc etc etc).
However, I have always lived by my heart and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Without our heart, we are just a logical, rational pile of molecules that doesn’t have any feelings (well not really, but you know…ha). But seriously, I will never stop living with my heart. I will continue to make mistakes. I will continue to frustrate those that care about me…my family and my friends. They try to give me advice. They try and tell me what they see and in the end it is usually right. But I would rather take a chance on my heart and be hurt than not take the chance and never get to experience those feelings and relationships. We only have one life, so why not live in the moment? Why are people so afraid to put their heart into something or someone that they care about? Why are people so hesitant to be passionate about something?
