Things Life Has Been Teaching Me

I can trust my gut.

I have solid instincts.

When people show you who they really are, believe it.

I hope that the evil your gut and instincts saved you from was not too heinous.

It's not that anything was so evil. I just used to give wrong situations chance after chance after chance, thinking that maybe my instincts were wrong and that it would be better for me to continue on with things until I became sure beyond all possible doubt. After so many years, what I have learned is that my gut and instincts have never been wrong, and that I can trust my thinking on things without enough proof to convince a jury of anything. :) I think life is more peaceful and productive for me when I can say no to situations that are not good for me. It is still hard to live out because when it comes to people, I want to go to the end of the earth to believe in others, but it's proven to be an unhealthy pursuit.

That is SO AWESOME! You are my hero. Good personal boundaries are a rare thing in this world.

And I"m really glad it's like what you said and not the heinousness I imagined.
