Did you know that your heart knows if you are in a situation of danger, love, safety, harm, or caring, faster than your brain knows?
How often have you had a prickly feeling when you didn’t quite feel safe? How often have you known deep down that someone cares about you even when they are upset or mad at you? Your heart understands the communication signals coming from others faster than your brain does. So, when you are wondering about someone else’s motive or intention as it relates to you, check with your heart, not your head. Sometimes people call this knowing a gut reaction. Some people call it intuition.
So, trust your gut, trust your heart. They won’t steer you wrong.
