Stop Looking Outside Yourself for Answers

This is something I keep thinking about a lot lately.

It’s something that I have to remind myself of constantly. 

Because I’m at a point now whereby I know enough about myself. Heck – I’ve learned enough self-help strategies to last ten lifetimes.

And whilst that’s not to say that I’m not open to learning more (I love to learn!) I think it’s high time that I began looking inwardly when faced with a problem.

I need to listen to myself, to trust myself…

rather than trying to find it in a podcast, TED talk or self-help programme.

I’ve been doing this a lot lately, to cope with the highs and lows of lockdown. Urghh.

When I’ve needed a friend, or a shoulder to cry on, or a slap around the face; I’ve turned towards myself for advice.

And to my utter astonishment, I’ve found that I am actually able to help myself.

Perhaps had I spent more time looking (and listening) inwardly; had I placed more value on my own advice rather than immediately looking to others who I deemed smarter/better, I wouldn’t have had as many problems in the first place.
