You need to listen to your heart. Sure, it might sound trite to you at first, but it is an important change you need to make right now. You have been analyzing things way too much -- putting what people say under a microscope and thinking much too hard about it. Back up. Why not just believe that people are saying what they mean? There are no hidden meanings or tricks going on -- there is no need to be suspicious, and your generous, kind heart knows that. Listen to it!
