Learn to Always Respond to Signals
"The prudent sees evil and hides himself, but the simple go on and are punished for it."
Trust me, you aren't as dumb as you think.
You can read people very well, but you aren't responding to their signals (or at least not responding the right way).
And sometimes the signals you need to respond to the most are the ones people don't intentionally give.
(When I say respond to signals, I don't necessarily mean doing what people hint at. You might need to stand up to someone instead. Or you might need to walk away from a shady situation.)
But if you ignore signals, they have a way of coming back to hurt you.
Stop ignoring the world around you.
Start responding to the signals people give you.
