The human mind is interesting. It is able to process things subconsciously and serve it up as a gut feeling long before we can come to the same conclusion at a conscience level.
The problem is that many times, we either don’t trust ourselves, which means that we ignore our gut and instead listen to other fears from inside our head, or worse, suggestions from friends and family.
I know there are decisions that I have struggled with for years, only to end up going back to the original gut feeling that I had felt many moons earlier. Think of all the headaches and heartaches, I could have saved if I had just listened to my gut the first time around.
Of course, it isn’t that easy. In order to trust your gut, you first have to learn to trust yourself. This involves realizing that you are your own best advocate, and that no one has your best interests in mind better than you, and that no one is better prepared to make decisions for you, than you. For many of us, that is a tall order. However, if we are not able to realize all of these things, in truth, we are not really whole, which is why we have trouble trusting our gut. After all, why trust the gut of an unwhole person?
So work on having trust in yourself. Make yourself whole. Then bask in the warmth of making decisions with your gut. You’ll thank yourself for it. Trust me.
