Listening to your gutPosted by: Emily | Posted on: July 10, 2012
Everybody is born with some level of pure human instinct. Those emotions that help us survive. They tell us when something just doesn’t seem right, when something isn’t the right fit for us, when you should turn around because your inner compass tells you that you’re going the wrong direction. When we are younger, these instincts are fresh and raw, but as we get older, our experiences change the way we interact with our instincts. Some people let them run their lives, others bury their instincts and put them on mute.
When it comes to dating though, our instincts can be a majorly helpful way to know how to proceed. But that’s easier said than done. Everybody has been there though, when you’re dating someone and something inside is telling you that things are off. It might be hard to know exactly how things are off, but if you feel this way in your relationship, then take a second to think about why you might be getting a red flag.
Suppressing your instincts will only work for so long. Trust me. Your inner compass exists for a reason, and things usually always happen that you could have predicted. But through things like that, you learn how to trust your instincts, and to give them more credit next time. If you feel like things are off int our relationship, it’s worth doing some investigation. You could be being cheated on, or something shady could be lurking behind your relationship. Listen to your gut, and it should lead you in the right direction every time.
