Rather than building self-confidence, whatever that is, focus on building self trust. We build self trust by listening and honoring, that’s it. It is eminently doable, simply a matter of focus and choice.
We listen to the messages the body is giving, and we honor and follow are yeses, and honor and walk away from our nos.
It is natural to follow our yeses and honor our nos. The only reason we would not do so because we are prioritizing an external reward structure over our internal truth.
So then, anytime we see ourselves resisting either path, we know that a culturally conditioned program is active.
When we see a culturally conditioned program is active, there is an opportunity to release that pattern and restore our connection with our wholeness, our truth.
And then we are free.
