Keep the heart a child…The mind an adult.



After breakups you start to wonder how much * Heart* we should give per person in relationships of all kind.

The hardest thing to encapsulate is the idea that we must love, wholeheartedly and openly as possible. How can we do this when we have to shield or cushion our hearts?

This brings me to the belief that we should keep our hearts as a child, but protect it like an adult would.


The bibles reference to this:

Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. … Above everything else guard your heart, because from it flows the springs of life.

Proverbs 4:24



Pros and Cons



Living with an open heart


  • You could get easily hurt
  • You could feel more than usual
  • This leads to the path of deeper compassion and understanding
  • You inner compass could lead you to a simpler happy life.



As opposed to



Living with a closed heart


  • You might feel nothing at all
  • You could block all feelings good and bad
  • You temporarily numb all emotions
  • You might be saved from feelings
  • This doesn’t necessarily mean happiness.

Neither routes as easy to live by, but rather than playing it safe with emotions, how would we ever get the chance to experience a more aliveness in our flesh if we turn away our feeling.


An open heart, may lead you to more pain, but it’s just a little chance for light to enter. For a heart to be broken is a chance hand in hand for it to be awakened. We all mistake broken for damaged, but it’s more a harder break even for more soul air to encapsulate it. Heartbreaks and grief’s are doorways to the soul.

Loving someone should come as no limits. To say you loved a person on a conditional basis would mean to say we don’t really love that person at all, so it’s a thumbs up to be able to love unconditionally, but its two thumbs up to do that and put up boundaries if needed.

Wearing your heart on your sleeve is a way you should be living. You should be able to keep so soft, but remember not all are willing to nurture that softness. You must protect on from the abuse and carelessness or another.

Keeping your heart childlike, is to let it rain free and purely. But mind disciplined and adult like just sets the tone to the level of loyalty it gives to another, so that you won’t have to think twice on whom you are letting in or the motives of others.



You can still love fully and express that love with and around the right people. Let your mind comprehend that job and your heart love them anyway.

~ Follow your heart, but take your brain with you~

Like a child wanting to attend the park to play whilst in need of adult supervision.
