People think with their head and feel with their heart*.
*”heart” means their feeling not their literal heart organ.
I think these two English popular idioms would be problematic then:
- Speak Up Your Mind
- Only Do What Your Heart Tells You
If you speak whatever lies in your mind, then it’s not guaranteed that you’ll use your heart, you’ll only try to be rational without considering feelings. Then it’s normal for other people to get offended, isn’t it?
On the other hand, doing what your heart tells you means you’re doing mostly without thinking. Isn’t this another problem? Other people will also be in serious trouble or disagreement with you.
What do you think?
