Do I trust in and act on my own instincts, intuition, and gut feelings?
This is such an important consideration to if you’re being your authentic self because if you are continuously ignoring your own instincts, intuition, and gut feelings you are not in alignment with your truth. The feelings that come from inside us are our most valuable gift from the Divine. It’s our way of knowing what’s right for us, and picking up on things we may not logically understand but are true, valid, and essential. If you’d lost this ability, start taking more time to tune in and see what you truly feel.
Do I hold back sharing my opinion for the sake of going with the flow?
This one is something that we can sometimes be conditioned for in the guise of being easy-going. Now I am fully aware that some personalities are just genuinely more accommodating and have less of an opinion on certain issues- but regardless it’s worth asking yourself- do I hold back when I truly do have an opinion. Even if you choose not to get into a conflict with others- you can intentionally find other areas of your life where you prioritize your own opinion. Then maybe someday dive into the vulnerability of sharing your thoughts with others.
