They say “Love is blind.” But for me, it shouldn’t be. Guess why? Well, that ‘blindness’ in love can leave you at a point from where it becomes very hard for you to be happy. That’s true actually. Even science says it so. A breakup is quite similar to physical pain. I mean the chemical reaction in your brain acts in a similar fashion when you get physically hurt. So, when you’re dating someone, make sure to trust your instincts to avoid the pain.
And, then the big question, how and why should you trust your instincts? Well, while dating, or the relationship that you consider to be a healthy one may not be the same. I’m not stereotyping it, but it is applicable to few, of course! And, going by your instincts, you can very well know whether you’re in a healthy relationship or not!
Why Should You Value Your ‘Instincts’ While Dating?
Should you trust your instincts? The answer is definitely a Yes! But when you do so, make sure to keep your emotions aside. Emotions and instincts don’t go hand in hand. And, trust me when I say this, emotion makes you react irrationally.
Emotions make you weaker; make you take certain decisions that you might not have taken going by your instincts. But most importantly, emotions stop you to take decision instinctively. It’s like, even if you are getting certain signs that you’re not in a healthy relationship, you’re held back because your emotions are keeping you attached to it!
Let’s move forward to the next chapter then…
How Trusting Your Instincts Can Help You Out?
The “gut feeling” that we often know or believe in is gifted to us by nature. It is something that you are born with. Well, wait, not for deciding on your love, rather for your survival. And, when a breakup gives you a physical pain, you can always rely on this gift of nature, isn’t it?
So, if you are not sure how to do it, follow these three steps before going on a date, as there cannot be any better dating tips than following your intuition.
1. Consciousness: You may be a very practical being, deciding always on logic. But there is always a physical and mental indication that your body shows it to you when you’re in love. Trust that and you can be in a healthy relationship always!
2. Trust a Friend: Having confusion on your intuition? Well, you can anytime discuss your ‘gut feeling’ with a friend. Too much of emotions can block your thinking capacity and a discussion can help you out in that.
3. Waiting and Intuition: When you have sufficient time to sit back and wait for the changes to happen naturally, do it. But when on a date or in a relationship, that demands a quick reaction, listening to your brain is the best thing you can do.
A breakup is not a piece of cake. You have given all your heart to an individual and it is extremely painful. But with certain measures and your own natural capacity, you can always win over a situation.
