“I know I can trust myself” is my newly adopted life mantra. Because of this, I feel calm. It doesn’t mean that I need to trust in God, or the universe, or time, or something else out of my control. Instead, it means that no matter what happens, I trust myself to deal with it.
My car breaks down – I trust myself to know what to do and sort it out.
A loved one passes away – I trust myself to heal and continue living.
I fail to sell any books – I trust myself to keep trying and write something better next time.
No matter the situation, I trust myself to get me through it. I trust in my own strength, love, abilities, patience, heart, spirit, honesty, confidence, resilience, truth, and light.
I know I can trust myself to make my life worth living. I know I can trust myself to regain my strength after times of being weak. I know I can trust myself to face challenges and keep growing. I know I can trust myself to accomplish all that I set out to, and make a good life for myself and my family.
Now, the reason I am sharing this with you today is because I feel that this mantra is perfect for everyone. It doesn’t involve anything specific, and it can be applied to most situations. I feel like it can help a lot of people to simply put trust in themselves, if nothing else, in order to be healthier, happier, and better in themselves.
Remember that words have power and so do our thoughts. If we are able to practice the mantra “I know I can trust myself” or more simply put: “I trust myself” I believe that we can feel stronger, and get through anything.
Will these words fix your problems? No. Is this another awful “positive thinking is all you need to fix poor mental health” post? Absolutely not! But words go a long way in comforting us, and when we are less overwhelmed and can think a little more clearly, we are then able to find solutions to problems or make changes to better our lives.
To have a go-to saying or belief that helps us to focus and regain control, can go a long way towards our healing and getting up again after a fall. And of course, as a writer, I love words and I believe that the right ones can bandage our wounds.
So, what is your mantra? Do you feel that mine is a good one? Trust yourself, my friends, and all will be all right once more.
