Do you believe in the power of intuition or "gut feeling"

 I cant explain it,but theres someone I grew up with who recently came back into my life...everytime this person comes around or contacts me my guard goes up. I cant put my finger on it,but somethings just not right. When she calls me our conversations are not out of the ordinary or anything,but I always hang up feeling like I need to stop talking to this person. This isnt right. This person doesnt have good intentions. I mean this feeling is STRONG. Last week I was eerily depressed for 2 whole days after talking to her. I couldnt figure out why I was so worried and sad,but the next day I didnt take her calls or texts and I was just fine. I guess what Im trying to ask is,is it okay to sever ties based on pure instinct? If so do you owe the person an explanation?

I think so, and no i dont think you owe an explanation. I find that when I don't listen to my intuition, I regret it. Every time.

This! Only every other time Ive ever felt it I had something more to go on like maybe the person said or did something that gave me a clue to get the heck out of there. This time is different.I feel bad because I dont want to feel like im judging her without reason,but man I dont feel right in her presence whether its physically or just on the phone or even online.

Then listen to it. Distance yourself for a while. It will either blow over, or the reason your hackles are up will become clear.

I use it at work all the time.  I have worked at the same store for over 12 years.  I can usually pick out the scammers as the walk through the door.  They just give off a certain vibe, you know?  At work they call me their "Secret Service!"  ;)
