I was reading a long post from Doc B the other day and it made me think of all the people, through the years, who have shared with me about “trust issues”. What he wrote in one of the paragraphs was, “No one knows the real you but you. Self-trust issues happen when we don’t know ourselves. That’s because we have lost ourselves, or maybe because we never knew ourselves to begin with. The confusion starts with the not knowing what you want and why you want it. Then we look for answers in others. Do you see the detour about to happen here? Suddenly you feel others don't want what you want and it turns into self-doubt or you become a codependent people pleaser.”
If anything he wrote hits close to home, write about it. You know me, I’m the journal advocate! We all have the answers … it’s whether we want to examine them in the light of day or make believe they don’t exist allowing them to come out sideways; addiction, anxiety, digestive problems, etc.
