Do you ever doubt yourself? Do you discount the certainty within because of social norms or inner scripts and outer expectations?
I know I do. I have been taught to mistrust myself. Taught to always reason my way to an answer. Taught that there always has to be an answer.
And the answer, “I don’t know this is true…but I know” is just not acceptable because it’s not logical. It doesn’t make sense.
We have created the word “intuition” to label that which is beyond thought. That elusive something that we know but just can’t quite put into words.
Or some people say, “Follow your gut.”
What did you know before the thoughts flooded in? Before the question and answer game began in your mind?
