Maybe it just that you have grown wise from all the people you’ve met during the years, from all your experiences good and bad and indifferent, maybe you’ve stored it all in your gut which now we know shares the same sorts of cells as our brains so is a good place to store what we know and feel. So you have trusted what you’ve learned and learned to “know” who you do and don’t like because you are aware.
Or perhaps I’m projecting because that’s what I have come to believe. As reformed people pleaser who understands and trusts her gut speaks because it has yet to urge me incorrectly, I am much happier now than before when I lived by “should" I forced upon myself rather than trusting who I am.
My gut tells me that you are someone I am lucky to know.
