Somewhere along the line I forgot. I forgot to trust myself. I looked to others: For advice Validation Direction. I asked the same questions over and over again: Who am I meant to be? Am I enough? Where am I going? But I never quite believed their answers. So I kept on asking. And questioning. Suspended In confusion and indecision. Until someone asked methe question: “What if there is nothing wrong with you?” And my simple answer was: “Then I would trust myself.”
The question was raised as an invitation on social media by the very splendid Lauren Marie Fleming. And, as I journaled my response, I realised that the many desire lines I’ve walked and written about are all evidence of self-trust.
A fundamental belief and faith in the liberating expression of choosing my own path.
Which made me think of you, and us, and the question:
“Do you trust yourself?”
Note: None of this is a ‘one-time, done-and-dusted’ thing. We ebb and flow, change and evolve, find our faith and lose it, over and over again. Which is why prompts for self-reflection can be so helpful: those simple reminders to check-in with ourselves, to assess where we are at, and where we want to go next.
