We human beings seem to be programmed to try to explain things away. Questionable actions are justified. And bizarre decisions are legitimised by layers of detailed (if slightly warped) arguments. Although we might think that our heads are leading the way, if we pay more attention, we realise that wherever our hearts lead, our heads follow... mitigating and justifying as they do. It's cliched, but it's true. You'll be better served today if you openly follow your heart rather than deceive yourself with false narratives.
