Trust is hard, but trusting yourself shouldn’t be. Or at least we would hope.
Our past experiences can creep in to our judgment and allow our thoughts to give mixed signals on today or tomorrow. There was a time when I wanted to hang out with certain types of people or date certain guys. I was so focused on appearance and what I felt from an initial encounter.
Problem was/is … appearances can be deceiving. And looks are from from everything.
Nowadays, although appearances and first impressions can be appealing, I try to analyze behaviors, demeanors, intentions, and what’s behind the exterior before forming thoughts. It isn’t always easy, but it’s important for me to take a moment to evaluate, even after an encounter.
Perhaps it’s lessons learned, or perhaps it’s lessons still being learned. The point being, I trust myself more now.
I trust my instinct.
I trust my actions
I trust who I let in and who I don’t.
I trust me.
Can you say the same? And it’s okay if you can’t yet. It’s all about progress not perfection.
Until next time, #radiatedaily.
