The Importance of Trusting Yourself

Posted on April 18, 2019

Studies have shown that the more we take ownership of our condition, the more engaged we are in maintaining behaviors that help us live better. An important factor in having the confidence to take this ownership is self-trust.

"If something doesn't seem right, I trust my gut and look for answers."
-Member of
MyLeukemiaTeam

"When I was first diagnosed, I kept my mouth shut even if my doctor said something incorrect or wrong for my body. I'm learning to trust those feelings - my intuition - and speak up."
-Member of
MyLeukemiaTeam

Here are some conversations about trust on MyLeukemiaTeam:

"Getting chemo now that will go daily for 5 days straight as an outpatient... I'm here and feel great. It's all good."

"Having a great day with my youngest grandson. He's really awesome."

"Did some cleaning today. It felt so good to have the energy."

Was there a moment when you doubted yourself and later realized that your instinct was right?
Or an instance when you were glad you trusted yourself?

Share that moment in the comments below or directly onĀ MyLeukemiaTeam.com.
