There is nothing more powerful than a woman’s intuition. You know that indescribable gut feeling we get when something is wrong, that tells us to research and react immediately. For many of us this gut wrenching gift has come in handy when uncovering things hidden from us in relationships. We’ve used this secret weapon to expose those who have wronged us without rhyme or reason. Our only explanation is “something just told me so”. Also known as our “sixth sense”, we’ve grown to depend on this truth telling tale to have our backs when needed.
But sometimes it’s not our intuition that leads us to investigate a perceived problem, it’s our insecurities. Yes, I said it – our insecurities and unaddressed issues can be easily masked or confused with a “woman’s intuition” and cause us to look for things that aren’t even there. If we are lacking in the trust department or don’t think we are deserving of a monogamous and happy relationship than we can easily fall victim to believing that our man is up to no good and possibly ruin a perfectly fine relationship.
It’s important that we don’t get these two “feelings” twisted and drive ourselves crazy imagining things that don’t even exist. If you sense something is wrong in your relationship, check the conversation in your head and figure out if you have evidence to support it. If not, then it could be your insecurities getting the best of you. I know it’s hard to admit that you may have insecurities but trust, we all have them and if you don’t manage them they can hold you back from having the fulfilling relationship you deserve. I’m sure you’ve all heard the saying “seek and you shall find even if nothing is there”. Remember, regardless if it’s our intuition or insecurity when we look for something wrong, we’ll most likely find it.
Woman to woman, our intuition is powerful, yet our insecurities are real, know the difference.
