Just follow your heart???

Have you heard someone say that you should always follow your heart? Or when you are trying to make a decision, they let you know that you should just "Follow your heart" or to "do whatever your heart tells you is right" or "listen to your heart."

Have you ever known of anyone who has decided to "follow their heart", and it did not go well for them?

Writing around 600 B.C.E., the author Jeremiah wrote this:

“The human heart is the most deceitful of all things and desperately wicked.
    Who really knows how bad it is?" (NLT)

If this is the case,  maybe it is better advice to listen to what your heart says to do, then do the opposite.
