to Trust or to not Trust

16 Oct

I have been mugged twice in my entire life (so far), and apart from ‘being mugged’ being the common thing in both the cases, there’s one more.  A sort of super power!

Let me elaborate.  One night as I walking home from a friend’s place, this mugger (who must have been following the super-oblivious-super-self-centred me for a while) came up from behind and snatched my handbag and ran in this street with hundred alleys.  I was so dumbstruck that I couldn’t even call out for help or anything.  I stood there and in a weird way felt relieved.  Why?

While at my friend’s place, I felt some kind of tugging sensation in my heart.  I joked around saying I am getting a stroke.  Somebody said it might be a panic attack.  The whole evening felt heavy and something was indeed bugging me.  On my way back and up until the moment when I saw my handbag disappear with the mugger, I had been feeling the heaviness.  Bag gone, so was the heaviness.  However, I am not trying to say the “bag” was heavy, if you know what I mean.

It was then that I decided to Trust my super power/ fear/ instinct/ panic attack/ premonition.

Second incident.  All morning I felt weird and immediately I knew I had to be careful.  There was the heaviness again.  So, I trusted my “weird feeling for nothing” feeling and I took every measure I possibly could to be safe.  No late night.  No carrying lots of cash.  No carrying credit card.  I was careful and cautious for most part of the day.  I cancelled an evening out with friends so that I could be home before dark.  Once home, I saw that my mobile was missing from my backpack.  I tried calling my mobile – it rang but no one answered.  I called again – the mobile was switched off.

However, I must add that I do get this “weird feeling for nothing” feeling quite often and I have realised some of the times it’s pure lethargy trying to be irrationally rational.
