Let’s face it, we’re all human, and we’re all imperfect. Naturally we’re going to want to give people the benefit of the doubt, and look for the good in people. We don’t want to make prejudgements and we certainly don’t want to make permanent decisions based off temporary feelings… but we do. Think about it. Have you ever made or known someone to make a decision when they felt mad, sad or desperate? Usually those decisions aren’t the best, and oftentimes in the heat of the moment we do or say things that can’t be undone. Thank God for His mercy, grace and forgiveness. We have to be the same way, merciful, graceful and forgiving. Does being these three things mean we should ignore those invisible red flags that sticks out like a sore thumb when something’s not right? No, most certainly not! Do not ignore those red flags. You may not have solid proof, but God gave us two things that helps us in situations where something is wrong, but we’re unsure about what that something is… He gave us common sense and He gave us an intuition. Both of these are gifts from God. There’s no prejudgment in either of these things, only facts, and the fact of the matter is, something is wrong! Your intuition and common sense let’s you know what’s up before anything goes down. Most of the time the problem is exactly what you think it is. Just to give the person the benefit of the doubt, you communicate with them. You give them a chance to confess what you already know, and this helps some people get the closure that they need to move and sadly some people stay and continue to ignore the red flags until the other person decides to walk away. Listen, don’t allow anyone to use you, especially to the point that they’ve taken everything good away from you, because it’s you that’s going to be left feeling bitter. Get out while you’re ahead! Don’t ignore those red flags! The benefits aren’t worth the risk! It’s like those medicine commercials. The medication fixes one thing but causes more problems in other areas. IT DOESN’T FIX THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM IT JUST TREATS THE SYMPTOMS! 🤦🏾♀️This is why “Friends with benefits” don’t benefit nobody! Too many red flags along the way that tells you it’s not right and you’re wasting your time. 🚨 Get out while you’re ahead! You’re absence will either do one of two things, make them come to their senses and get themselves together or it will have no effect at all. Don’t think of it as a loss, but a lesson learned.
