I Trust My Instincts

    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...

    Or do I? There are those times

    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

    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...

    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...

    Your Inner Most Feelings Are Your Guide

    It's a communication to you on which path to take. Sometimes I look back on the person I use to be and I laugh. In those moments, I was trusting my instincts and following the signs. It took me on a long journey only to discover that what I was seeking was within my midst all...

    ....except while gambling.

    Never seems to pan out in those situations. (I was SURE the dealer would draw a four, but it's ALWAYS a freakin ten).

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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!

    Strange But True

    The Truth

    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...

    Instinct ??
