Take heed indeed
Heeding a warning
Have you ever just had a gut feeling that something someone was going to do, would be harmful or end up in a mess? You warn them but they don't listen until it's too late.
Then we want to say I told you so, but you bite your tongue as to not add fuel to the fire.
Sometimes people can see and feel bad things way before you do and want to warn you so that you don't end up in an undeserving situation. Sometimes people have a way of knowing things before you ever see it coming.
Take heed to someone telling you not to do something if they think it is detrimental to your health, surroundings or your life.
Don't try to prove a point just because you think you need too. Many a folk have gotten more than they bargained for by not heeding to good advice.
Now I'm not saying that everyone is trying to give you good advice because there are those out there that will tell you something so they can reap the benefits and make you lose out, but if it is coming from someone that truly loves you and says "I don't feel good about this, then listen to them.
Nine times out of ten they will be right. I think for the most part families and spouses do not mean any harm by telling someone something that could in the end save them from something dreadful happening.
Take heed indeed and listen to what you are being told. It may be the best thing you ever did in your life.
