The Heart Knows What It Wants

Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing is a big part of her life. Online work has improved her lifestyle.

The heart tells the truth!

As always, the heart won't allow you to fake your feelings. True feelings come from the heart. Fourteen years ago when I arrived in Croatia life changed forever, not knowing of the place and of the different lifestyle was my weakest point.

I observed and knew the life I once knew was slipping away from me I spoke to the different people and did not take much to heart right away. Being much younger to realize what was happening in my life at that time didn't have my mind opened to the new events.

When I realized what I was up against life carried on with my plans. In time and place, I knew I had to face up to everything in my own way.

I didn't know how I will heal when I was faced up with the many challenges, but can see that time didn't heal as much as I had thought it would for me. At least, at that time I felt that way as if time will heal, but one never knows unless they are in that position.

I don't think time can heal a little in anyone's soul.

Why don't I feel that way?

Time has passed and to really heal from that change is not easy from all sides. There are far too many obstacles, and those are the hurdles I felt would disappear in time.

Obstacles don't disappear. I remained positive and happy during challenges. In trying to move on and improve in one direction was not a smooth occurrence. Life has changed and each day I see more and more of my new self, and like my new self, mature, smart, and sometimes bossy.

I don't think of what had changed me but how will the change affect me each day. I felt better to be myself than to have moved on to another life in being someone else. I feel happy and have allowed myself to be strong about what I know can make me feel weak at times.

Tough times have passed and I brought myself to feel more within myself.

It is easier to talk, and to think you know everything about the emotions of others. The heart tells you everything not other people.

For Example:

He is in love with someone else. His wife thinks she is the only one for her husband. Unfortunately, the husband's heart is for another woman.

He can't hide what is in his heart.

The true feelings are shown more than the false feelings.

Whether, you are in love, or have experienced a different lifestyle. The heart shows your true feelings. Hiding away from the truth is not a possible way of life.

If you choose to block off the true feelings from within you will certainly live in misery.

Be true to yourself and to your feelings.

The feeling of a happy life, and of a not so happy life is all right there in front of you.

Someone who cares about you will show you the light not the darkness.

I wouldn't change myself in any way. I like my new self.

The heart allows you to forgive and move on. Forgiving is easy when you think with your heart.

Physically and mentally you allow the heart challenging experiences.

When people lie they think of the reasons for telling that lie, and don't think of their true feelings.

The choices you make can allow for careful thought.

When said from the heart others can be affected.

Your heart feels peace from your choices made. You can be sure that you have made the right choice.

The path chosen from the heart would lead you to a better place.

Follow your heart and you will go along way with that intuitive feeling.

When you experience pain from someone's behavior rather walk away.

To have that person in your life would make you a most unhappy person.

The reason for making your decision should remain through yourself.

You want to make a decision thinking with the mind but the heart always gets in the way.

It can be most difficult if you feel confused.

Only you can know what your heart is telling you as I know what my heart is telling me.

Don't deny the truth from the heart.

The answer to whatever you want to know comes from the heart. You may think everyone else knows better but remember deep down only you know best.

The dark cloud hanging over your head can block your hearts desire.

The heart and mind working together as usual is a challenge.

The final thought must come from the heart.

The people you spend your time with are those who you should count in your life.

The heart tells you more than your mind can take on.

To discover the truth from within listen to what your heart tells you.

Truthfully my heart told me to take on my new challenge in a positive way.

To explore, you need to be adventurous and go with the flow.

Have an open mind about life. I managed to do that for myself to move on and to be confident in making decisions.

You can try listen to what others have to say, or to what others want you to do. No one will know better except you from within.

Learn to trust yourself with your choices.

Take on what you know will be enough for you.

Don't listen to what others think is good for you. Only you know from your heart.

Who are you?

Living your life by your own decisions show your true character and your true self.

Do what you feel is right to avoid following others.

I did not follow anyone but myself!

I relied on my own ideas and feelings. I knew then as I do now, I have to go on with the my true feelings.

Listening to other people is not my way of life.

I can talk and get to know individuals but when it comes to making decisions, I do so on my own.

I believed in myself and know myself better than anyone. I like to be different and prefer to take on challenges on my own.

My life felt easier when I followed my true heart feelings.

It is not always what you want at least you will get there.

Just pray daily and think positive. Be patient and you will get what you want from life.

When you think with your heart what you need and enjoy will be the better place for you.

Seeking advice is an idea in the end.To follow your heart to improve your lifestyle in its own ways., is another thought.

When you follow your heart you are happier and think freely.

The heart allows you to feel true happiness and successes.

You can have many dreams think with your heart.

Living a lie is the false feeling from your heart.

Telling lies makes it all seem good on the surface.

Deep down you know what is killing your true feelings.

The feelings from the heart don't lie. In trying to be your self the heart can only allow that for you.

Show your true being accept your true emotions without a doubt.

I see my true self with my true feelings. I can't fake what I truly feel.

Live life

Life is meaningful

      I believe that the heart wants what the heart wants and you will never know true happiness unless you follow it's direction. Terrific hub.

      Good advice Devika, you need to be strong and confident when your life changes like yours has. It is good if your heart and mind are in unison and work together but if not, you do need to follow your heart.
