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?
