Self Trust
“Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.”
Benjamin Spock

Self trust is often overlooked yet it is one of the most powerful virtues we have. When we trust ourselves we are first of all keeping our power, as opposed to giving it away to outside sources were we look to for the right answer. Then when things do not go as planned it becomes very easy to play the victim role then blame others for the circumstances we face.

When we put our full trust in our self by following our intuition and doing our best, allowing us to move forward one step at a time with belief and confidence. Love, persistence and hard work combined rarely lead you astray in the long run.

Developing self trust includes becoming your own best friend, And that means keeping promises to yourself. Making a commitment to yourself and keeping it, builds up your trust in yourself

You might make the commitment to exercise more or see the doctor for a checkup. You might make the commitment to go to bed earlier or eat healthier.

Trust your feelings and hunches. Stop before reacting and feel what it feels like to you. Does it feel good or bad? Analysing the cause and effect of your actions helps to build confidence,

Listen to what your body is saying to you and watch your life move in the right direction. The more you trust yourself, the more you bloom.

“The person you need to trust first is yourself. No one can be as consistently supportive of you as you can learn to be. Being kind to yourself increases self-confidence and lessens your need for approval. Loving and caring for yourself not only increases self-trust, it also deepens your connection with others.”
