Red Flags You Should Never Ignore
I want you to think about this right now. Picture yourself a year from now- how are you going to feel if you keep ignoring those red flags that are waving in your face? What’s going to happen to your life? This is what helps me. When it’s hard for me to make a decision in the moment, I think about the future and I ask myself this simple question- “Trent, if you keep allowing this, where are you going to be a year from now? What is it going to create?” I’m not telling you to cut people off, I’m not telling you to end relationships. I don’t want that for you, I am just asking you to have some common sense in your life.
If you truly care about being the best version of yourself then you cannot accept less for your life. It’s just facts and we all do it. I’m talking to myself too! There’s red flags waving in my face too and I’m trying to ignore them because my good heart wants to see the best in people. My good heart wants to see the good in the situation but those red flags are right there. Ignoring the red flags in your face is like ignoring a “dead end” sign and you keep driving. That’s real. It’s the same with your life.
A red flag in my life is someone who is always saying “trust me” when they don’t have the track record to prove it. Now, there are some people who ask you to trust them and they can back it up and those aren’t the people i am talking about. Sometimes you see a red flag but it’s because of your own past. Someone in your past ruined your trust and now you meet someone new that shows you something similar and you see a red flag. That happens to us all, we are human. Another red flag is someone who is always blaming someone else, because that shows me that they don’t take any responsibility for their own life.
These are just my red flags, I hope you write down what the red flags are to you because it’s going to be different. Another red flag for me is when people tell me that everyone in their past was “crazy.” It makes me think that if everyone in their past got driven to that point, maybe the common denominator is them!
Whatever your list of red flags is, make sure that you listen to them. Do not settle for less than your life is meant for.
It all starts with you.
