The Importance of Trusting Yourself

Posted on August 16, 2018

Studies have shown that the more we take ownership of our condition, the more engaged we are in maintaining behaviors that help us live better. An important factor in having the confidence to take this ownership is self-trust.

"If something doesn't seem right, I trust my gut and look for answers." - Member of MyLupusTeam

"When I was first diagnosed, I kept my mouth shut even if my doctor said something incorrect or wrong for my body. I'm learning to trust those feelings - my intuition - and speak up." - Member of MyLupusTeam

Here are some conversations about trust on MyLupusTeam:

"It’s time to thank our old fears for helping us survive then wave goodbye to them. We don’t need that much fear anymore. Welcome peace, trust, acceptance, and safety. Listen to our healthy fear and let go of the rest. We can trust and love ourselves."

"I'm finally got approved to get my Benlysta infusion! My insurance is pay half of it and the rest of the costs are through grants. Thank God I listened to my intuition to do some research about getting help with the costs."

"Now taking the steroids, I hardly feel any pain. I'm told to take them for only 10 days, but I have a strong intuition that it will be a forever low dose because the pain keeps returning in one form or another."

Was there a moment when you doubted yourself and later realized that your instinct was right? Or an instance when you were glad you trusted yourself? Share that moment in the comments below or directly on MyLupusTeam.com.
