Trusting yourself

12 Jun

I read this last night and wanted to share it.

There are some people who come into your life with “WARNING” stamped right in the middle of their forehead. Their story sounds a little strange. Their actions totally contradict their story. You may not know what it is, but you know is not quite right. What do you do? TRUST YOURSELF!

It is not necessary to have every tidbit of information or to know every gory detail about a person, because your instincts are usually correct. People show you who they are by what they do. If it doesn’t feel right, they are probably not! We want to help everybody. Those we can’t help, we want to save from themselves. To accomplish this, we will often ignore our natural, self-protective instincts and buy into a sad story. Yes, we want to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but we also want to learn to trust ourselves.

Learn to trust what your inner voice is telling you. If the person is real, you will find out. Until then, we must stop bandaging bleeding hearts; otherwise, we will continue nursing our grieving hearts.

My story

5 Jun

Ok. So I use wordpress a lot for work-related stuff. I figure it’s time to start for myself. There’s a lot I want to say but don’t necessarily want people to know it’s coming from me. Here’s my first blog thought:

Life is hard with hard lessons. Sometimes God has to just get your attention. You can’t move to the left, you can’t move to the right. You end up flat on your back. He tried to get through to me but I was too busy trying to fix it myself, too busy trying to be my own boss. Well, I get the point now. I trust you, Lord, and most of all I’ve now learned that I need to trust myself and my instincts.

Intuition is a powerful thing. Have you ever looked back on a situation and said, “I knew everything to begin with?” You didn’t have any evidence, no facts, just this overwhelming “something” you get when you’re gut kicks in. I’m no longer going to ignore that something.
