Instinct

The daily prompt a few days ago was instinct.

Upon reading it, the word that pinged in my head was intuition.

 

Successful people listen to their intuition.

When I say successful, I don’t mean people who make a mega load of money and live in gold filled castles.

I mean people who are happy. Truly harmonious in their environment. They’ve found peace with who they are, the world they live in, and those who live within it with them.

 

Number one thing this world numbs us to?

Ourselves.

Our intuition.

The voice inside.

 

 

The world tells us to ignore it. Disbelieve it. Shame it. Write over top it in the worlds’ lush, arsenic-filled, bold, loud script.

Basically, get rid of you and put on this plastic suit, so you can be miserable while simultaneously what other people want of you. And boy, you had better act like you like it.

 

Antidote? Find a way to live your live as the person you are, in the way which is right for you.

(unless you’re a murderer, rapist, or animal abuser – then I think you should just die slowly in a hole)

Simple antidote?

Don’t let their voices drown out the one inside you.

Simple but extremely difficult, challenging, and complicated.

 

 

Follow your intuition, your gut. You know what is right for you.

Don’t lose you.

    True, my friend…Sometimes I’m just not sure how to make it so, though. Gwen
