I am an intuitive person who for years and years stifled her gut – especially when my gut said "stay away from that person/situation/place" – because I was worried I was wrong or paranoid or "just being difficult." Some of that was sexist gender education which taught me that unless it's a happy feeling, it's a wrong feeling. Some of that was trauma from having been parentified in childhood, which taught me that it was ok for people who were supposed to protect and love me to also hurt and use me. Intuitive people with trauma often have difficulty trusting ourselves, but our bodies hold sacred knowledge. Listen ♡
