RED FLAGS AND PATTERNS
today it’s gonna be a little more personal. there’s something i’ve noticed recently, and when i was sitting at breakfast with arian this morning i had the urge to write it down. have you ever felt like there are patterns with people in your lives? a certain personality type that always seems to enter your world every couple of years? in my case, it’s not the best personality match for me…but it keeps coming back. and it’s funny because this year i realized that i am not properly learning from my mistakes. well, that’s not actually that funny.
i think as we get older we have more of a “red flag” censor that goes off in our minds when you meet someone that could potentially be trouble for you. that gut feeling when something just doesn’t feel right. it’s essentially up to us if we choose to listen to that warning. each time i get a little smarter and think to myself “this is probably not a good idea to get close to this person or work on this project.” but in the end, i’ve still been ignoring that red flag and hoping for the best.
so i start to wonder, are these people or projects being put in front of me as a test? will the life lessons finally set in and cause me to make better decisions when faced with this in the future? i hope so. do you know the red flag i’m referring to? the one that usually ends up being exactly right? girls are cool like that. intuition. lesson hopefully learned: trust your gut.
