Never discredit your gut instinct. You’re not being paranoid. Your body can pick up vibrations, some better than others, and if something deep inside you says something’s not right about a person or situation, trust it and keep it pushing.
i will never understand the phrase
"she looks amazing for 40"
40 isn’t old
and old isn’t ugly.
the lack of respect we show for women who are past a certain age
how we discard them and label them useless,
and see them as past their prime,
has always confused and frustrated me.
Have you ever made an irrational decision and days later want to undo ?
Then something happens that confirms it was the right decision?
