That gut feeling you have? That’s your your voice of wisdom, your intuition. Are you trusting the voice in your gut? Or are you allowing it to be drowned out by the louder voices in your head? Learn to recognize the difference and choose wisely.
Judgment, doubt, fear, desire, pride, pressure — those are the voices in your head saying things that make you question your worth or intelligence; that justify taking shortcuts and telling lies.
That feeling you can’t quite shake, urging you not to go through with something you know is wrong, keeping you awake at night because you didn’t give someone a chance, pushing you to be brave enough to do or say the unpopular thing because you know it’s the RIGHT thing — that’s your gut talking.
That is not to say you should never listen to the thoughts in your head. Reason, deduction, comprehension, intellect - those are all good things. But they are not the ones screaming so loudly.
When in doubt, turn the volume DOWN on the voices in your head, and turn the volume UP on your voice of wisdom.
