Ever heard them say where there’s smoke, there’s fire?
Relationships, friendships, and clicks from all spheres of life are so awesome. We always feel comfortable when we fit in and are surrounded by people we believe are for us. We often enjoy it so much that when certain alerts present themselves as warnings, we either play blind or dumb just so we won’t be alone. We’d rather keep bad connections. Red flags are not for decoration, they mostly precede costly occurrences or serious repercussions. They’re easy to avoid but better off managed.
1. Remain alert
When it comes to people, it’s essential to watch your back! When life happens, people make decisions and sometimes not so much in your advantage. As they say: Love them all but trust no one!
2. Evidence is key
As much as we have to watch our backs, remember there’s a thin line between that and paranoia that can destroy beautiful relationships. Unpack your suspicions, be open about your fears on time.
3. Don’t ignore signals
Big problems are born from small ones that are not attended to. The minute you start getting those red flags, know that’s a thorough alert that attention is needed. Surrendering to the belief that it’ll go away on its own or be sorted later can bring about danger.
4. Flush or Flee
The danger within relationships today is we’re pressurized to trade with dishonesty. When we call things out we’re either a nag, snitch, or perfect petty. Open communication is essential. Ensure that you’re building healthy connections, or be bold enough to call it quits.
5. Leverage on your worth
Believe that you’re worth being in working ties. Pursue your happiness and celebrate that you’re like no one else.
Know that these signals will appeal to your true self; self-trust is key! Always remember that it’s about you too and there’ll always be something demanded from you. Your truth… Your call!
7. Guard Your Heart
Leave room for fresh beginnings and refuse to be offendable. Allowing people to become enemies to you will only delay you, probably even turn you into a problem. Decide, forgive, move on!
8. Secure Your Parameters
After any experience, the best thing we can do is become wiser! Classify your acquaintances and friends very carefully and know the difference. Take full control of who plays a role in your life! Takers come to take and have no idea when to stop.
