Without giving ourselves permission to follow our heart, it is unlikely we will ever do it.
Other people may encourage us to reflect on past successes and sometimes even on failures to establish strengths and weaknesses. Then there are folk who suggest we shouldn’t expect too much from “these trying economic times”.
Considering all this input, giving ourselves permission to follow our heart doesn’t seem too taxing in comparison. Listening to a variety of ideas is fine, provided we remember we are the experts on ourselves.
Ultimately, how we live life depends on our attachment to it and ‘giving ourselves permission to follow our heart’ is no worse a piece of advice than any other but, in all likelihood, much better than most.
