Not possible to prove any of this and there is a built-in paradox...

Yesterday I knew the night was going to end badly . I sat on a bench behind a church and gathered myself. I convinced myself to ignore this thought and carry on and not abandon the night as a social one and return home prematurely. A very strong feeling of anxious future-feeling. And then it played out with a number of coincidences, good ones for the most part. But in the back of the mind that sense of anytime now.

And then it happens. In a very bizarre turn of events. If I had listened id have avoided a mishap but would never have known I was correctly anticipating a mishap.

And there are times when I get it wrong.

Perhaps I am misattributing chance events.

I dont know.

Sometimes life feels predestined.

Big aspect was very very amplified tinnitus. Seems to sometimes act like a warning siren.

I think im getting better, recovering.

I do need to be cautious and vigilant, yes.

Thanks for the kind concern.

I understand I have a responsibility to hold it together. Yesterday night was a wake-up call. There will be lots of people that consider what im doing unwise. I would just say it's not at all easy it has at turns felt excruciatingly painful. I think im making rapid progress.

I couldn't 't go on living as I had been. I had to accept the mental fight and believe in rscovery and believe I have it in me.

If I mess up I take responsibility for it. No one else is to blame.

I think we are all seemingly capable of that on occasion. It occurring on a consistent basis is another matter.

I think i just need to learn the lesson finally and pay heed to these messages when I receive them even if occasionally ill be missing out on something. One door closes another door opens.

I dont get these very intense presentience overwhelms very often which is Why giving them credence would be a very good idea. They are in a different league to suspicious thoughts or social anxieties.

I had a friend who was a sensitive, she got herself out some situations by listening to whatever signals warning her. Once she ignored them and sure enough something bad happened.
I believe things are very much written out for us but every know and then we choice which path to take.
