Follow Your Intuition, It Can You from a Bad Relationship

By  | 

I’ve met someone. Or better yet, I have re-met someone. You see, this new fellow in my life came into my life just last summer. At the time, I’d begun my relationship with Paco so I didn’t pursue this new interest. I remember thinking: I want to give me and Paco a fair shot. And I said it aloud to my new interest, the man I first met just last summer.

“I am with someone. It’s recent so I want to give it a fair shot.”

And I did. I really tried with Paco. I have eluded to the breakup but haven’t said much about it otherwise. Let’s just say he was good on paper and I was good on paper, but we weren’t good on paper together. Let’s just say the first weekend we spent together I knew something was off. In my gut, I knew it wouldn’t work. And I called my good friend, Vicky, and said aloud:

“I don’t know about this.”

Because I didn’t know. From the beginning and throughout our relationship, I had doubts but convinced myself otherwise. That’s why when he left back to Vegas, the morning after our breakup, I sobbed in the shower from relief.

I felt free.

But, I will save the juicy details for my next book. Yes, I am writing a second book! If you didn’t get the first, click here.

So, what is today’s lesson? That we must follow our intuition. That nagging feeling is often the truth, our truth. Even if it doesn’t make sense, or if it seems good on paper, you must follow your heart. It’s the only way to truly have and be love. It’s the only way to be free.
