Welcome to Have a Heart

What does it mean to say “have a heart”?

It’s an imperative; having two meanings and both are appropriate: could be demanding attention and showing that it is absolutely necessary, something that is required and unavoidable or an invitation to have an attitude of benevolence.

  • “Show some compassion” . . . be merciful, show pity, be reasonable. To be generous, understanding and forgiving.
  • It means not to give up in the face of adversity . . . that you can do things larger than you are.
  • It can be used when someone is demanding too much attention or setting unrealistic expectations.

Well, what we mean is someone who is generous, kind, caring, loving, giving and always well disposed to do good to everybody, whether to a friend or to an enemy. Being a “have a heart” person is not actually an easy thing. To be a “have a heart” person you need to have lots of patience and understanding. No matter how many persecutions, mockery, criticisms, humiliations, and hardships the world may give or send to a “have a heart” person, she will never give up in doing good deeds. A “have a heart” person always keeps his doors open to all people, whether to a friend or to her greatest enemy. He that has a big heart always puts everybody above himself or always puts himself second to others.

Some of us would say, having a heart means to love the people around you unconditionally and accepting them for who they are. It means to let go of your prejudices. It means to give time of your life to put yourself in somebody else’s shoes.

Do you know a person who owns a big heart and is known to “have a heart”? What does it mean if someone has a big heart or if it is said that someone is “all heart” ?

When we say that someone is “all heart,” we are using a basic idiom to say that that person is full of positive attributes like love, charity, goodwill, and generosity.
