Stop looking to others to give you solutions for problems that arise because you do not trust yourself in the first place, or to tell you how to live your life. You are powerless to make good choices if you cannot trust yourself, which leads to making choices based on the opinions of others.
No one knows what is best for you more than you. If you keep seeking external guidance and distrusting yourself, you will end up with a life that does not make you happy or suit you. You are likely to repress self- expression when you do not trust yourself, and this eventually leads to depression.
Actually, depressed and confused people are often immobilized out of fear of making the wrong choices because they do not trust themselves. Most of the world’s child raising standards teach children to obey authority; children are rewarded for following the rules while being punished for questioning authority.
As children learn not to trust themselves, they grow up to be adults who blindly depend on external guidance, rules and regulations. As a matter of fact, many of the issues we face today arise from not trusting ourselves; we do not know how to look within for answers because we have given our power away.
Trusting yourself allows you to be the creator of your life and puts you in the driver’s seat. Spending your life looking to others for answers will lead to countless bad decisions such as great financial loss, failed marriages and a lot of issues that could have been easily avoided.
Knowing that you have to find a way to trust yourself is the key, despite evidence to the contrary. You need to make the conscious choice to trust and believe in yourself; your choices will keep improving as well as your life.
