How many times have you relied upon the opinions of others to make your decisions? One of the first things you have to do when you trust yourself is to stop relying so heavily upon the opinions of others. Do you find yourself analyzing every decision in your head before you make it? If so, this means you are not trusting your inner core or your own intuition. When you come from trusting your own intuition and core, you’re coming from that place of truly trusting yourself.
When you begin trusting yourself, you will go through struggle because you’re so used to second-guessing yourself. It takes time because you have to build a sense of awareness of trusting the process. Know where you’re at emotionally.
Here are the steps to making decisions you can trust:
2. How do you feel about it? Good, bad, or indifferent?
3. What are your options? What are the pros and cons of each?
4. Ask yourself if you are coming from a pure place or a place of ego.
5. Make the decision and be confident in it no matter what others say.
You can experiment with it in different situations. Just follow the steps. Healing yourself, listening to your inner child, and loving yourself are crucial parts of trusting yourself and healing. Each case is different. It can be internal or external. Each situation is unique in its own way. Situations involving others are a little more tricky as we need to be careful as to how our decisions affect others, as well as ourselves. Trust is not only about the situations or decisions we have to make, but also about knowing ourselves and sometimes looking at things we don’t want to claim. Our ego has a lot to do with this. When we accept the good and the bad within ourselves, we can establish a healthy balance and better trust.
