    I Knew As Soon As I Saw Her Look At Him

    I knew my ex was cheating on me as soon as I saw her look at my friend at a party. Then he looked back and I released hell. It was a sad lonely night in the cell for me but a painful night for my ex friend in the hospital. Violence isn't always the answer of course but...

    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!

    They Know

    Sometimes it's not what I want to hear, but they always know. Always right when something is amiss, or wrong, or off.  Always know when something will be okay and that things will work out for the better, too.  Always know a good thing when they feel it.  They...

    Instincts

    There's a big percentage when it comes to me and my instinct.  Many times, I just don't pay enough attention to it.A few years ago, there was people in my house and I saw the way this person looked at the other.  My instinct told me something and I just let it be.Another time...

    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...

    Your Inner Most Feelings Are Your Guide

    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...

    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...

    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 Trust Them About People

    We all are around people so much that we notice when someone is acting strange. We might not be able to articulate why, but they give us a weird feeling, we're usually a bit hesitant about them. Today I went to the gas station with my fiance to pick up some crackers and 7 up...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
