If you watch the OWN network at all, you have probably come across a show called “Love Is _____” I recommend you watch it, binge watch it or whatever. I am a fan of Mara Brock Akli already we go way back, like “Girlfriends” and “The Game” way back. But this show caused me to do one thing, question what love is.
Something that the director said about the show is that when it came to her love story, she and her husband found themselves following their hearts every step of the way.
I’ve always been told, “the heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” Even I have experienced the hearts deceitful ways, when it comes to my heart and I we have severe trust issues, and I surely cannot understand why it intended to constantly fall for men who do not fall for me, so how can I trust it, how can I follow my heart, when I believe my heart is dead set on leading me down the path of heartbreak?
Can you really follow your heart? I have never quite heard it put that way, but one thing that I noticed is this, there were two people constantly following their hearts each time, and too many times I’ve seen someone out there on a limb alone.
