Basically the title. I hear a lot here how we need to follow our intuitions or gut feelings to get a good assessment of the situations or people we are dealing with. However, I struggle with this because I have been dealing with a lot of social anxiety for a little over a decade now. I realized that I have a hard time discerning between me just feeling paranoid around people because of my own anxieties vs picking up a legitimate bad vibe from someone. On the other hand, sometimes I get the sense that someone or the situation is good and honest but it ends up being the opposite and it was just me being too hopeful, maybe even delusional.
I've sought out therapy especially in the last couple years but I'm still struggling to get in touch with my intuition. How do you gals do it?
