Call it a feeling in your gut, bones, whatever. It's real.A woman just KNOWS things, plain and simple. She can sense if her man (or woman, I don't judge) is cheating, if something is wrong with a loved one, if her child needs help, anything. It might start as a random thought, then it becomes a 'might-happen', then the intuition kicks in and sometimes bad things are prevented.
What is the difference between intuition and paranoia? Is there one?Yes. If you sit and think about what is bothering you (rationally of course), you can decide on your own. Ask a friend or family member for their advice. Another person's point of view sometimes helps. Intuition is a feeling something is wrong. Paranoia drives you crazy thinking the worst.
I will use myself as an example. One day, my husband came home from work, babbling on about some chick he worked with. I thought nothing of it because I'm not a jealous person. Next thing, they became Facebook friends. Again, nothing new. He had a bunch of people from work on there. She started commenting on everything he posted. I was a little 'wtf' but not letting it bother me. Two days later, I couldn't shake the feeling something was up. It came out of nowhere! My intuition kicked in and I called a friend of mine. She told me that seemed kind of fishy and to investigate. I did. What I found truly shocked me. I found a post he made to her page that seemed a little friendlier than it should have been. I asked him about it and he buckled and muttered something. THEN my paranoia kicked in. I became the person I hated most - the snooping wife. He was obsessively looking at her photos while at work WITH HER! I later found out they had been texting... and even calling. The cell phone bill came in one month and he tore me a new one about all my usage. I thought 'no way' and checked the bill. My heart dropped. I was right. It wasn't me! My paranoia ended up validating my intuition.
Should you act on your intuitions? That is up to you. Think about it rationally and if the situation feels right and all the pieces fit, then by all means do what you feel is right.
What do you think? Is women's intuition bull or the real thing?
