The prize has been won. Healing can now begin in earnest. But don’t give away your heart just yet. There’s still deception in play that can bring the rug out from underneath your feet. Remove the rose-colored glasses and listen to your instincts.
Something isn’t right today and you already feel it. Don’t try to talk yourself into ignore your gut feelings. Just because someone is being nice and trying to make amends, doesn’t mean they’ve changed or they’ve abandoned their plans to cause harm.
It’s ok to want to think the best of people and have a positive compassionate attitude. But it must be balanced with a measure of caution and real honesty from within. Those rose glasses you’re wearing have gotten you into trouble in the past. Why do you think your instincts are less valid than others around you? Stop it! And listen to that gut feeling.
No matter how much you think standing your ground makes you look like a selfish person, that’s just an emotional ploy. Keeping yourself safe is a selfish act. But it’s one that is sometimes necessary. If those involved truly respected you and cared about you, they would stop pushing so hard. That they’re using mind games to attain what they want, instead of respecting your decision says a lot more about their ulterior motives than your character. Don’t let them manipulate you and stay confident in your first gut reactions. No really means NO.
Sometimes the truth hurts. But it’s better to hurt a little bit now, than to hurt a whole lot later on. There could be much better opportunities waiting for you to learn this lesson and get out of this sinking raft you constantly putting yourself in. You don’t have the luxury to be naive any more. Accept the sweetness with grace and gratitude. But don’t give in when you know there’s something not right here.
