Trust Yourself?

- POSTED ON: Sep 15, 2011

What is Trust?

The dictionary definition is:
         "Firm reliance on the integrity, ability, or character of a person or thing"

There are areas of my life in which I can trust myself,
and other areas and situations in which I cannot be trusted by anyone.

I can trust myself to engage in positive behaviors in many areas,
yet in other areas and situations, I demonstrate very little positive ability or character.
For example, I can ordinarily be trusted not to steal,
but I cannot be trusted alone in a house
with a favorite sweet that I haven't had for some time.
......even if it is YOUR house.....

I can trust myself to consistently record all of my food-intake,
but I can't trust my own body to tell me
the amount that I need to eat to maintain my current weight.
My mind also sometimes lies to me about what I need to eat.

So...the wisdom of placing trust in oneself...can be situational.
