I am looking for something like this with the heart

I have the heart image but since I am new to After Effects, I don't know how to make it beating like a real one. I did scale animation and it's not the same.

Please help!

This example looks like a simple scale.

If simple scaling isn't doing it for you, you could experiment with some of the Distort effects like Bulge or Mesh Warp to alter the shape of heart.

I am totally new to this. I think scale can help to change the size as I wanted. But I don't have experience in making it look like real beats. The way it came out very edgy/hard motion and not smooth. I guess something like Easy would help? I don't know.
