Why You Should DEFINITELY Always Trust Your Instincts

Last August, I wrote a pretty honest post about why you should always trust your instincts. Since then, things have taken a bit of a weird turn and I thought I’d give a bit of an update about what happens when you think you’re trusted your instincts but then you let someone in again. TL:DR-you should always trust your instincts.

When you’ve cut someone out of your life, correctly, and you’ve been so relieved that they’re gone, you should always remember that feeling. Remember how nice it is to have no drama, no hassle, and no contact from them. Be pleased that you’re relaxed and feeling good, life is going well for you and even though you’ve lost money, you can survive it. Learn from my mistake (again!) and when this person somehow manages to contact you, despite the fact you’ve blocked them everywhere you can, don’t respond to this e-mail, just block the e-mail address.

Then, when they contact you through a new Facebook account, block that. Block the two other e-mail addresses too, and the social media accounts they use for a business they’re involved with, and their friends. And run far, far away. Don’t make any effort to get back the money they owe you, or let them put things right like they want to. Because it will just cause more hassle and drama overall.

I had three occasions, within a week, where I should’ve avoided the person from the start. The first I did when I was proved right, so I kind of did okay. The second I did within about three hours, and the third-is who this post is about. You should always, always, trust your instincts.

I’m an idiot and I don’t learn a lesson, I have now learnt a lesson and can confirm that, in future, I will always trust my gut. Have you had those ‘why didn’t I listen to my instincts’ moments?

    I can relate to your post in so many ways. It is so difficult when you do cut off someone especially when others don’t understand why and insist on telling you what you should do instead – always trust your gut and remember that this is about how it will impact you.

    I totally agree with you on that one – i believe that what is in the past (after we get rid of something or someone ) should stay there as it ended up in there a a very good reason x

    I totally agree about trusting your instincts, you know yourself best and if something doesn’t seem right you should trust that to do something about it x

    I totally agree with you that you should always trust your instincts, the older I get the more I realise it has not let me down x

    It’s so true – our gut has an incredible ability to read a situation and tell us what the best thing is to do!

    I know the feeling when your gut is telling you to run a mile. As I get older I am definitely trusting it more.

    Yes there has been a couple of people that I have been more than happy not to be in my life anymore. So nice not to have that stress

    Yup, the one time I didn’t trust my gut, it didn’t end well. Gonna listen to it more from now.
