Stop Questioning Everything And Follow Your Heart

Allef Vinicius

Time is a difficult matter. They say that time is supposed to heal and that time is supposed to make everything better and relieve our problems.

But is it really time that does these things?

Personally, I don’t think so.

I don’t think any amount of time can make something better. Time cannot heal your broken heart, it can’t make up your mind, and it can’t clear away your issues.

The only thing that can do all these things really is you.

You control your mind and you control your body.

You are responsible for your own healing and your own development. Time cannot do any of this for you.

The way you allow your mind to think is the way you allow yourself to live. If you constantly dwell on things, you are putting yourself in a negative state. It is like you are trapping yourself with no opportunity to move forward.

The only way to evolve as a person is to change that mindset you have put yourself in. It’s a small thing to do for a lifetime of happiness. It is important to follow your heart in the moment. You can’t let somebody tell you when the right time to fall in love is. Somebody can’t tell you when to move on. The only person responsible for this is you.

It’s your heart and your feelings. Waiting for the ‘right time’ may cost you the ‘right guy’. You can not let your past hold you back, after all, it is your past… something that you’ve left behind in order to create a happier future (which you are currently living!).

There comes a time where you have to stop questioning everything that happens to you and just live in the moment. If something or someone brings you joy, go for it. If you’re offered an amazing opportunity, take it. If you have a good feeling about something, trust yourself and follow it. Do not allow your mind to overthink and overpower your happiness. Stop allowing yourself to be confused.

Deep down we all know what we want, and if you really have to question something, then chances are you don’t really want it. So the longer we take tossing and turning about things, the longer we are deterring our own happiness.

We all experience things at different stages of our lives, therefore nobody can sit there and tell you what path to take with your feelings.

Don’t allow the concept of time to deter you from new relationships, new beginnings, and newfound happiness.

Be the pilot of your own life and create your own distinct path. Remember, life comes with no rulebook.

You are not required to have a ‘happiness’ based on social norms. All you are required to do is listen to and follow your heart. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
