Sometimes it helps to talk things through with a friend only to realise that you knew the answer all along.
Why do I find it so difficult to listen to my inner voice? Why do I try to rationalise a bad feeling in my stomach? I think I am afraid to miss out an opportunity, or rather make the wrong choice that I will later regret. I then start to argue rationally with my mind and convince myself why I should do it, even if deep down I actually know that this is not my road to take. Sometimes it takes a very long time for me to truly recognise and acknowledge that my intuition was telling me something else and that I was the one to allow my mind to take over and make the “rational” decision. I hope that with time I will get better at recognising and allowing my inner voice to emerge as well as guide me.
