Here’s a question for you: do you trust yourself?
I didn’t trust myself for many years, and I’m still untangling some of the places and spaces where I give away my power to other people. People who I falsely believe are wiser and more experienced, therefore more tuned into what I should be doing.
Truth is, I didn’t trust myself because I didn’t really know myself for all those years. I couldn’t hear what my body was trying to tell me or recognize the ways in which my intuition was screaming as loudly as it could. I wasn’t sure what I wanted or needed in so many situations. I tried to be “right”—to be whatever other people needed me to be.
This led to creating a life that was so far from aligned.
When you don’t have self-trust, you doubt yourself every single step of the way, no matter what you’re doing or where you’re going. You feel stuck. You’re scared to be yourself. You don’t know how to discern what’s right and true for you. You have no strong opinions because you don’t know how you feel.
If you’re looking for a fresh start in the new decade, then I would urge you to focus your efforts on learning how to trust yourself.
Let go of what others think you should do.
Let go of what you think you should do.
Give yourself the gift of grace as you lean into trusting yourself and your intuition. As you make mistakes and missteps along the way. Stand steady as you learn to own your worth, your feelings, your opinions, and your emotions. To take up more space and have a louder voice. And weather the storms that come with honoring your truth despite letting other people down.
I know it in my heart, you won’t regret it.
