FAITH FORWARD FRIDAY: 10

One of the things that I like best about myself is my intuition. My real ability to feel deeply about things, places and people. I know when things aren't right, or when I am unhappy and I can pretty much pin point the source of the discomfort. The problem arises when I ignore what I know and feel to be true.

Today was a turning point of sorts. What I've known for a long time has finely become clearer. I ignored my own intuition, thinking that perhaps what I knew to be true was just be my imagination. Mistake #1.

No one's opinion of how I think and feel super cedes my opinion of what I think and feel...about the world, the stars the moon or me. Mistake #2

I know full well how the power of suggestion works. I know what manipulation is. If you allow someone to use it on you...you get what you get. Mistake#3

When people tell you who they are, believe them. Do not romanticize their meanness, nastiness, coldness and disrespect. Mistake #4

I own my time. How I spend it is my choice. Giving my time to someone who is undeserving is my fault. Mistake #5

My circle of friends is small and intimate. They know how to love, care and protect me. You cannot call anyone your friend on a whim. Mistake #6

If someone cares about you they do not hurt you. If they do they do not try to make it seem as though their hurting you is your fault. Mistake #7

Stupid is as stupid does. Mistake #8

If someone doesn't bring out the best in you, you do not need them in your circle. Trying to make sense out of the senseless is wasting time. Mistake #9

There is no convincing in love. There is no convincing in friendship. Not realizing those truths is painful. Mistake #10
