I am hoping that the days of “teacher knows best” are dying and individual logic and instincts triumph.
The experts, the media, our gurus, rulers, teachers, family and even friends are all fallible. It’s good to be respectful. Listen, learn, collect different perspectives. But then do what feels right in your gut, mind and heart.
And if you feel unsure or if your instincts fail, give yourself permission to be human. Most of us have spent our lives allowing outside information to override our feelings. Just keep practicing and you’ll get better. Eventually you will find your unique voice and path that is more magnificent than anything anyone else could have prepared for you.
Practice having faith in yourself.
