Importance of Trusting Yourself
How much do you trust yourself? We all trust ourselves to the point where we are able to keep ourselves and our families safe. We understand life and are able to set goals that will enhance our life styles. What if I asked you, do you trust your self enough to walk away from something that you now depend on, if it’s negatively affecting your life? It could be a job, house, car, mate, addiction, friends, or pet ect ., Also do you trust yourself enough to decide whats best for you, without relying on the opinion of others. And finally, can you trust yourself to know that only you are the King or Queen over your temple and the only one who determines how it should be ruled?
Reasons why Trusting Ourselves is so Difficult:
The world is a sea of knowledge, and history has been our best teacher. We look to experts, religious leaders and scientist to answer creation’s most difficult questions. Getting knowledge and advice on things we are not expects in would be beneficial. No question is a stupid question, right. Children are taught that parents have all the answers to their little questions. When they started school, teachers are added to the list of experts, This cycle continues and continues until we build a vast memoir of all knowing expects, whom we can search our minds to find at any given moment. Because of this we are quick to look to others for our most deepest answers and not inside ourselves.
