“Your Heart: Friend or Enemy?”
The cardiologist proclaimed that his most important role was to allay each patient’s fear of his heart – of being attacked by it.
I’ve long advised sufferers to listen to their hearts – and give thanks.
But when this cardiologist listened to his – he became quite stressed. His heart his enemy, not his faithful friend.
Few people I have found really regard their hearts as part of their selves – but rather as a foreign entity dwelling, sequestered, within them. Who at any moment of their choosing can attack and kill.
They are xenophobic of their own hearts!
