    Do you think your gut feeling is always right?

    Really can people just be thinking things that are not true because they like that path of self destruction.

    Yes they can 'think' things that are not true for that purpose, but your gut feeling is separate from your most apparent thoughts. It's that message you get in your stomach (inner-self) that says "Don't" or "No" or "Yes" - and many people just choose to ignore it it, or worse do not even hear it over their wants or needs.

    Yes, I believe our instincts are usually right about most situations. One of my mottos is: Know yourself, Love yourself, and Trust yourself.

    Most regrets are usually met with someone saying; "Something told me not to...etc but I (ignored) it."

    You can fool yourself for a long time, but not forever. You can convince yourself to believe (or not believe) something while squashing down that nagging little voice inside you. The key to the gut is to be open to understanding yourself. Which is so much simpler than people make it out to be (not that I've figured it out myself, mind you). I have felt "gut" feelings that turned out not to be true, and only later realized I was trying to trick myself into doing (or not doing) something I was supposed to/not supposed to do. If that makes sense. In other words, when you truly trust yourself, you can truly believe that inner voice. No, NOT the one that sounds like Mom - the other one, the True You one.
