Years ago, I was invited to a birthday party at a restaurant-bar. I had an unsettling feeling about going, but not wanting to be rude to my co-workers, went anyway. Lo and behold a big fight broke out amongst another party, and some folks got hurt. I remember thinking to myself, "why didn't I just trust my instincts and stay home?"
Many people sign up for self-defense classes after they've been attacked. When they talk about what happened, they often say the same thing: "I had this bad feeling, but I told myself not to be paranoid," or, "I knew I shouldn't have gone there, but didn't want to hurt my friends feelings."
If something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't safe — that's the bottom line. Many people have been conditioned to ignore the little voice that tells them trouble is coming. Your instincts are the best detector of danger. The next time you hear that little voice, trust your instincts, and listen to what it's telling you.
