How many times have you said 'I KNEW
Yet at the time, acted differently because you placed your trust; not in
what you 'felt', but in what someone else told you?
Trust your intuition.
Never doubt those niggles, despite
what other people may say to the contrary.
Issues only arise when we confuse
Intuition with Ego responses. (Hopefully will get into that at a later
You should never entirely place all
of your trust in anyone other than yourself.
Now, I'm not saying not to trust
ANYONE. Because during the course of our lives, many great things occur
when we trust other other people. We trust a pilot, we trust teachers, we
trust police officers, we trust our friends and we trust our loved ones.
All I am saying, is that everyone is
complex, and most of us have good intentions. Listen, Absorb and Assess
situations and then choose to trust in what YOU feel about the situation
and put that trust in yourself.
When you forget to trust yourself,
and allow that trust to reside in someone else's hands, then trust me,
you'll likely wish you hadn't!
For example, we trust in the pilot,
because we trust in the airline. We know that the pilot is fully trained,
and there is a co-pilot. So it's ok to trust that at least one person in
the cockpit knows what they are doing.
Retain trust in yourself, do not
give that responsibility to others, they may not be as careful with it as
To trust someone means you know that
come what may, You trust in yourself and your judgements of that person.
Actions speak louder than words.
Yet, if someone says one thing and
does another; we have no reason to truly trust in them.
So we must fully assess any
situation before proffering our trust.
Listen, Watch and Trust what you
Try to avoid thoughts, just FEEL.
If something feels wrong, question
it immediately. Don't just wait to see what happens later and then regret
it. Deal with it asap, clear it up - if it was 'nothing' then at least you
can proceed with a little more trust. If it was 'something', then you'll
be very grateful you found out NOW, rather than later.
When your inability to trust, yourself
or others, is effecting your
emotional well-being or your day to day life you may benefit from counselling and therapy.
Counselling should not be seen as a last resort, it is a fantastic way to
talk through the things that are bothering you with someone impartial. Seeking counselling at
the early stages can dramatically improve your emotional confidence.
