First and foremost, trust yourself. Trust your intuition, your mind, your feelings, and your experiences. That is an area I’ve struggled with since the beginning. I had a hard time trusting my own experience about what I went through as a child, and an equally hard time trusting my experience of God as a young adult. I wanted someone else to tell me what it all meant, because honestly, that is the world I was raised in. I was not raised to trust my own experience, but that of others, especially “experts.”
Other people are wonderful and can be great teachers and guides, but they are not you. You are here to learn about your own heart, and create your own world. You can learn what is true for you by getting still and sitting in silence until you can hear your own heart. That is the best voice to trust. Your own.
If you feel you need guidance or help, ask a close friend or family member who you know has your best interests at heart, but know, as I often didn’t, that they still have their own life, their own experiences, and their own goals and dreams. They may be able to help you, but the final choice and path is yours. Above all else, trust yourself.
