The Importance of Trusting Yourself

Posted on August 16, 2018

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 MyCOPDTeam

"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 MyCOPDTeam

Here are some conversations about trust on MyCOPDTeam:

"We come here to learn, we come here to share our experiences and bolster each other in our battles to survive, and we use what we learn here and elsewhere to go back to our docs, or find the appropriate specialists, to make sure we get the best care possible and in accordance with our own feedback for what is working or not working."

"Be your own advocate, learn all you can, then move all you are able, carefully, adding little bits more gradually to add up to better fitness and body use of oxygen"

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 on MyCOPDTeam.com.
