What does it take for us to trust our own instincts? Does having the confidence to pose a question mean that we have the guts to advocate for what we believe is right? Asking questions is probably the first step in trusting ourselves. It shows we value what we think.
But what does it take to trust ourselves? Experience. There's two ways to get that- the hard way- actually go through it or the easy way- learn from someone else. I think that's why stories can inspire us. To the extent that we can relate to a story that we read, it is as if we are sharing in the experience. And through the eyes of another we gain experience that can inspire us, give us courage and enable us to trust ourselves. I think that may be why Little Patient Big Doctor: One Mother's Journey resonates with readers and inspires them into action. What do you think?
