Has Your Intuition Ever Saved Your Ass?

Tell us about a time listening to your intuition made a huge difference.

Call it a sixth sense. Or listening to your gut. Or intuition. Sometimes you just feel when something isn't right.

For example, a popular self-help book from 1997 called The Gift of Fear, explained how learning to listen to your gut can actually save your life.

That feeling you get that something or someone or some situation is sketchy or just off —  and not even for a reason you can necessarily pinpoint — can totally save your ass by telling you to get the hell away from someone or avoid a certain place or to make a beeline to help.

We want to know how your gut instinct saved your ass or your life.

Maybe you've found yourself approached by or talking to someone who just seemed really off.

And you were able to get away from them or grab someone to help you out.

Or maybe you've been served a drink and just had a really bad feeling.

So you played it safe and poured it out.

Maybe something about a certain place just didn't feel safe.

And you got out of there damn quick.

So tell us: Has your intuition ever saved you?

Tell us exactly what happened and how you know that listening to your gut was the right call. Maybe it wasn't life or death per se, but it was life or...something pretty bad. Whether it had to do with a person, a place, a thing, or something else entirely, we want to hear about it.

Tell us in the comments below and your story could be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Health post.
