The concept of “being true to myself” seemed foreign to me for most of my life. I would listen to others instead of myself; or I would listen to my doubt instead of my intuition. That’s probably why I kept receiving the same messages over and over again. When I finally started to live in integrity and follow my heart,Guest Posting an amazing shift took place. Now my "self" almost demands that I live true to my values.

In trying to be true to ourselves, we often make some unusual (and unpopular) decisions. They feel good to us but, at times, may be not quite politically correct. We proceed with the decision but then the doubt pops into our head. Did I make the right decision? What will they think of me?

Doubt can play very silly games with us. Even though, at times, we need to pay attention to its nagging feeling - other times it can destroy our hard earned effort to "be true". If you go to all the hard work of thinking out a decision, listening to your intuition, and logic - then you also have to trust that process and not let doubt (or what others think) ruin your accomplishment of being true.

It's like they say about prayer: If there is a decision to be made and you pray and pray and pray about it, eventually you must go with the trust that WHATEVER decision you make - will be the right one. You must trust and not second-guess yourself. Boy, what a tough assignment!

Doubt, others’ opinions, and second-guessing can cause more stress and anxiety then making the original decision. Follow your instincts to block out the doubt and trust in the decisions that you make. You will end up seeing validations that you did the right thing. It will be further confirmation that if you are true to yourself the universe will support you!
