...before you go

picture source:

Oh yes, before you go,
there's something I'd like to tell you.
Don’t ever do anything that makes you uncomfortable,
don't let yourself be pushed through a door you shirk to enter,
when something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t
and instead of freezing, shutting down and waiting to see what will happen,
say “Get your hands off my shoulder!”, “Thanks, tonight I’m staying clean.”,
stop the car and turn around or defer your decision to another day.
I’ve seen the outcome to a few of those I didn’t do or say,
and they’re not preferable to the choices open to you.
Some things are meant to happen, when the adrenalin starts to flow,
and some are a warning to you, to slow down before diving in.


  1. ... I decided to go ... cuz I need to grow ... Love, cat.

  2. Really good advice Shadow... we really need to listen to ourselves :-) ♡

  3. Wonderful words of wisdom. But there's so many meanings. Sometimes, one might not be strong enough to override the power on them. However, it's nice when you do see the warning signs to act accordingly or find an alternative solution. Love the tree image, wow!

  4. "if it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't" I often adhere to those words as my instincts will kick in and say step the situation at hand.

  5. I've had to remove those hands from my shoulders too. It's a better outcome.
