I Listen to My Gut Feelings

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 212 People

    I'm only recently starting to listen to them,

    better safe than sorry I guess looking back most of the time they were right and situations with people I got involved with didnt turn out well.

    Most of the Time...

    I should listen to my gut more often though! It's rarely wrong. When I first met some certain people, my gut feelings were to not trust them. Something was seriously off... yet, my feelings of wanting to believe the good in people made my nagging insight go away. I must change...

    Not In A Crazy Way

    I have always listened to my gut feelings, or Fate as I call it. Here's an example of what I mean: On the college campus there's a set of bathrooms that seems to have magic around it. I'll never encounter someone while I'm in there, but I have to go when Fate tells me its empty...

    I trust my emotions more

    than my reason at times. Don't get me wrong, I am also a rational person, educated, and usually logical, but when it comes to important decisions, if my gut feeling is going one way and my logic tells me to go another, logic will not win. For example, while we are not ready to...

    This guy who criticized me

    before turns out to be a total control freak! It seems like this loco is so obsessed with me. After two days working with him. He asked me for my contact info. Initially I thought it was not a big deal and I played down the discomfort I felt with him, so I gave him my instant...

    And When I Don't

    If I go against what my gut is telling me, then chances are I will end up regretting it. That has almost, but not quite always, been the case with me.

    This is likely not to make any sense,

    and it'll probably sound weird, but I'm going to try and explain it. Like most people, I get this strong knot in my stomach when something isn't right, or when I shouldn't do or say something, and I listen to that feeling. However, it also works in another way for me. When I...

    For A Living!

    Personally, I really do make an effort to pay attention to what my intuition is telling me, and sometimes I must admit I do make a right mess of it.  But I keep trying because I believe our bodies know a lot more than what we're cognizant of.Professionally, I would be out of...

    I Think I Know What's Right Around The Corner.....

    Most Of The Time

    And when I don't, I usually wish I had listened to my gut. For instance, I didn't listen to it recently and it appears to be biting me in the butt. Oh well, not the first time. But this time does surprise me, big time.
