    The Ex-bf

    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...

    One of the most hurtful things is

    when a person lies to you and they don't realize that they're harming themselves not just to the other person... In addition to that they keep blaming the other person and don't recognize their own mistakes, it seems that they get their ego boost by blaming or judging the other...

    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...

    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...

    Strange But True

    What I'm most known for among friends and family is being logical, reasonable and level-headed so even to myself it sounds strange to say I trust my instincts above any train of reasoning but it's true. My past is rife with decisions made purely by instinct but to my knowledge...

    I "go with my gut"; my first instinct. When I don't I usually regret it.

    The Captain Commands, The Crew Obeys!

    I dunno are these my instincts or my intuition, but I do hear my inner voice, which guides me through life. Sometimes it's just absurd, I try to act rational, but it proves to be wrong. So I decided never to go against my intuition, even if it doesn't make sense. It always knows...

    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...

    Instinct ??

    There are 4 types of person in this world : 1. The person who knows, and knows that he knows. He is wise, so consult him. 2. The person who knows, but doesn't know that he knows. Help him not forget what he knows. 3. The person who knows not, and knows that he knows not. Teach...

    They've Helped

    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!

    The Truth

    My Mother never liked her. She was a customer in the bar my parents managed; attractive, well groomed, with good manners. Saturday nights usually included some kind of drunken fracas, but she was never involved – an exemplary patron. My Dad didn’t understand: “She’s no...
