Why Is It So Hard To Trust Myself?

Why Is It So Hard To Trust Myself?

I want you to know that you are worth listening to. Your intuition, your gut, your higher self knows who you really are. It offers you guidance all day, every single day. Your only tasks are to ask, to listen, and to act accordingly.

You need only to believe that this is the truth when you hear it. This is your truth.

In the beginning, you were one. Your brain and your heart were intact, one magically cohesive partnership, working to support you in making decisions, preparing to guide you along the path that is most true for you.

This is the truth. One whole, complete, powerful creature, is the way you were in the beginning.

But, this isn’t the way that you are experiencing life right now. When you are blessed with an invitation to make decisions about your direction on this path, you feel uncertain. You feel disoriented. You feel as if you can’t actually tell which of the choices is the best one for you.

While you ache to live in alignment with what is true for you, you may feel overwhelmed by uncertainty.

You worry that you can’t tell which thing is true for you.

Know this: Your truth is known by you — not by your partner or your friend, an expert or a guru. Your truth is an endless, natural spring that bubbles up from deep within you and nourishes you always.

Many have been abused and have little self esteem and let others dominate them.
Well Jane B., yes there is a long way women still have to go for full equality but I would rather be a women now than 200 years ago when women were still property, could not vote or do much without the approval of a male.

Of course, never trust your instincts if one is a sociopath-they never have any doubt about what they end up doing to others but for the rest of us we must learn to be gentle with ourselves, be fair and give ourselves allowances that we give to our own family and friends.

Most people have forgotten what they truely believe so when it materializes inside as an inner critic, or outside themselves as critical people, we get confused. I have found that if you will boldly accept that, in either case, it's coming from some conclusion you made, who knows when, as you observed and decided, whether it was based on false premises or somebody elses experience.The key is to accept responsibilty for cleaning it up so you don't keep 'stepping' in it.Never mind who made the mess originality, you can start saying, 'I believed this once and I've lived it too many times, and now, I'm done with it." Then use your imagination to put yourself on a better feeling path.
Redoing the same old rant just keeps you a victom and an energy vampire, always drawing attention to yourself and your personal vendetta.

Well I guess there are other compelling reasons to not eat fast food other than it really is nothing…

Thanks for posting.

Cannot stop catalogs, I tried- recycle them.

This sounds just a bit too new agey for me, sorry.

All good. Thank you.
