The gut instinct is like a sixth sense or an internal alarm that warns us "PAY ATTENTION." We may be tempted to shut down these gut feelings, telling ourselves we're just being paranoid or anxious. But the gut instinct exists for a reason: to protect us from danger. So next time you feel those "spidey senses" tingling, don't ignore them. Assess the situation and take action if you can. It's better to be safe than sorry.
