Choosing Between Love, Feelings and Emotions

There comes a time of our lives where we have to choose. We choose between our feelings and emotions, other times we choose through love. If we chose through love, we fly; if we choose our feelings and emotions, we become confuse and things doesn't make sense. I've been reading a book for a while it's called, "Love is not a Feeling but a Choice" it says our love is not made through feelings but are made by our choices. When I first read this book I was still in the university with the belief that love composed of our feelings and emotions to the other person. But as my perception matures I finally realized that LOVE indeed is a CHOICE.
How do we choose? As human nature, it still involve feelings and our emotions. Sometimes our feelings and our emotions conflicts us, other times they click. But if we choose with our hearts, that is through love, we definitely have made our best choices. Feelings and emotions deceives us, our hearts don't. One reality check is choosing between our heart's desires versus our own desires. We may love something or say love somebody but that person doesn't have the criteria that we have set for ourselves or she doesn't have the means that our parents and friends are expecting you to have. The tendency is to forget our heart's desires and continue to struggle with our feelings and emotions just to satisfy our own set of standards and other's expectations of you. We, most of the time live through people's expectations, the reason why it is hard for us to choose. We don't care about ourselves but we care more on other's perspectives on us. You know we only live once on this earth so we should choose on what our hearts are saying and should not be based on our feelings and emotions. Because most of the time our feelings and emotions are the results of the outside force, that is based on other people's ideas and expectations on us and not based on our heart's desires.
