Sometimes I doubt myself. I mean I try to listen to my inner voice yet I begin questioning myself. Sound confusing? Try listening to my inner monologue that sounds like a dialogue and make sense of it!
During this time of new normal, I find myself questioning many things. What is my purpose? What should be my first priority now that I am concerned about getting coronavirus? Should I stay at home and continue to self-quarantine now that my state of Virginia has opened back up? What should I do?
I think I know the right thing to do and then I doubt myself. I usually make a decision and quickly follow through with it. It is ironic because I am a Libra and we are supposed to have a difficult time making choices. I think I overcompensate for this by making a quick decision. This could be because I think fast, move fast and talk fast. I contribute this to my hyper nature. Anyway, this seems to work for me. Then self-doubt creeps in and I question my decision making capability.
I read a quote by Socrates, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Okay, I guess I am on the right track since I am examining my life to see if I am making the right choices. Then I examine myself even further and realize that by knowing my strengths and being aware of my weaknesses, I am gaining self knowledge.
Another quote I read said, “Pain is an inconvenience. Make pain your friend so it teaches you a lesson rather than let it hurt you.” Reading these inspirational quotes does help me to quiet my inner insecurity and self-doubt. So I will learn from these motivating thoughts and continue on in my journey to know myself better.
