    Meaning: I won't give out my name,

    address, my school name, my pics on an app like this. With anything I act on instinct, so if I block you don't be shocked why. "I just got blocked and idk why" Because I frankly don't have trust in anyone on EP and apps like it. I don't add old people and if I never had a...

    They Are There For A Reason.

    Instincts to me are there to protect us. To help us give ourselves a warning before jumping into a bad idea, a dangerous situation, a risky event. I have always trusted my instincts. If I had wanted to take a class and decided that I would, but when I'm about to choose it...

    If we are to find our inner peace we must grow,

    learning to recognize and trust our instincts will help us in this journey of self discovery. Don’t accept labels, they don’t define who you are. Use them instead as a catalyst to discover your greatness. It is in overcoming bi-polar, ocd, depression and other forms of...

    I'M Deaf To Mine Sometimes

    I could have spared myself a lot of pain and misery if I had just listened to my instincts. My instincts have saved my life at least 10 times but when it comes to other things I'll ignore it. I really need to stop doing that. I trust them it's just that I'm conveniently deaf to...

    I was involved with a guy and things were getting quite serious. He was 27 and I was 19. Despite the progression of the relationship he still hadn't told me a lot about his family or his beliefs and there seemed to be so many trivial little facts that he didn't share. After a...

    Early Warning System

    Better than anything any techno geek can come up with - your body has a multimillion dollar early warning system. It's called gut instinct and when it's tripped: that's how you get the fight or flight response. I didn't always trust me instinct the way I do now. I learned quickly...

    when I say to myself "argh I knew I should have done what I thought I should've done" And then there are those times where I go against my instinct because my instinct is so often wrong... But then it was actually right... So I got it wrong... XD

    My instincts are, usually, right. I know when taking my tests, especially in French, my instincts really helped and I was able to keep near the top of the class by going with my instincts. They really do help when learning new languages. Well, they help me anyway!
