Our self-esteem can be boosted or continually damaged by our inner voices.
Sometimes an inner voice can mimic the critics of our past, so we have taught ourselves to ignore our inner voice. We don’t trust ourselves to tell the difference between voices of the past and current reality.
This is especially true for people (like myself) who have been in an abusive relationship where our very being is constantly reminded of how flawed we are.
Your inner voice should be trusted, though!
By listening to your inner voice, you can gain insight into what makes you happy and unhappy. You can also hold the power to transform your life into one that is more vibrant and fulfilling.
When we’ve taught ourselves to ignore the inner voice, we use the badge of “busy” and the responsibilities and demands of our daily lives as the noise to filter out the inner voice that could help us when we need it most!
The good news is that regardless of how busy or hectic your life may be, there are ways to filter out the distractions so you can hear your inner voice, and learn to trust that voice.
As you reconnect with your true self, you can use that voice to guide you to the things that will bring more joy, progress, and peace into your life.
