In the course of getting to know a person have you ever seen a photo of the inside of his or her home and:
- knew immediately that you two were on the same healthy wavelength & moving to the same vibe? Or,
- knew instantly that this person was not mentally balanced & that it was time to walk away from the relationship?
I’ve had both situations happen to me in the last month.
I’m not talking about judging the decorating style of a home as acceptable or unacceptable according to your own vision of beauty. That’s subjective.
I’m talking about seeing how things are put together in someone’s home and realizing that this is not how self-aware, sane people do things. That all your vague, non-specific doubts about this person have been confirmed by one glimpse within his or her home. That he or she is, indeed, just as crazy as you sensed he or she might be.
My message here? Pay attention. Trust your gut. Live happier.
If only I’d known this at a younger age, I could have avoided lots of awkwardness and craziness. But I didn’t.
Now I do.
