Topic: Do you ever just get a "feeling" ?

Today I have felt "off".
I cannot place my finger on it.
Sure WH was a few minutes late from work but nothing to raise an eyebrow...
But, when I expressed concern to whereas he usually laughs it off - he got defensive.
After a few minutes of unwind time - he apologized - said he's super stressed at work - which is true.
But - I can't shake a gut feeling...
I don't even trust my gut anymore BUT something is off for sure.
Fool me once - Shame on you. Fool me twice - pack your shit and get out.

Yes, and so far it hasn't been wrong. Trust your gut and go into stealth digging mode if you need to.

Yep. And every time my feeling has been spot on. Trust your intuition.

Yes. I'm where you are now, just a feeling that something is off. I haven't trusted my gut until recently, but I've had this feeling for a long time. And now that I am I think I'm finally starting to uncover some things.
Trust it. Stay calm. Start digging.

Those gut feelings are usually right. Occasionally it ends in. Surprise that it's something else or even one time a surprise for me! But everything it's been right

EVERY feeling I ever had meant something was going on or I was about to discover something. Even now that we're separated and almost divorced, I still get feelings and BAM! Something comes up.

How many minutes is a few?
Ever since I found out my husband was cheating on me I've felt "off." I'm not saying it's nothing, I'm just saying it's normal to not feel quite right these days. I would keep an eye out, but my suggestion is not to obsess over one "off" moment, but that's JMO.

3P....the one absolute thing that I've learned from this shitstorm is to ALWAYS trust you gut.

I am going to agree with gonnabe here. The problem with this situation (in my personal experience) is that we suffer an utter blindside betrayal. This makes us emotionally suspicious of everything and always trying not to allow ourselves to relax, so that we are not caught out again.
I get a hundred of these 'not quite right' feelings every day, and thats an improvement on last month. 90% are nothing, but I remember the 10% that are linked to a new fact or realisation, and so this feeling becomes a warning, even if it is 90% wrong.
This feeling does not tell you that something is wrong. It just tells you that you are uneasy. Dont ignore it, as you may have picked up on something that you should know, but dont convict anyone based on a gut feeling.
These days, a gut feeling tells me that I need to look deeper, and either I find something and I was right, or I dont and I feel better. Either way, look out for yourself.
