In business dealings I am learning to listen to my gut. I’ve been burned a few times when hiring people. With each mistake I make, I am learning lessons I can now utilize when needing to make a knowledgeable decision on hiring someone. I’m learning to notice the red flags RIGHT AWAY instead of getting myself into a business deal where I have given someone my money and I can’t get it back. I’m not so trusting anymore. I’ve become a little shrewder, more cautions,. My trust has to be earned. I don’t have to people please anymore if I’m not satisfied. Being a recovering co-dependent, I stop making excuses for people because I find it hurts me.

Today nobody gets a pass until they show me they are worthy of my time, my money, my friendship, my love, my labor. This is loving me 101.
