Doubt

Doubt is the absence of faith
Signifying a lack of trust,
a welcome sign to fear.

Self-doubt is the worst of it
As we become our block,
To growth and peace

We stop believing in the unseen
Forgetting Faith is the building block of life
Becoming doubting Thomas’s we stand in our way

Doubt comes as a whisper
Then manifests itself as chaos,
Bad decisions follow, retribution is regret.

We all know of doubt but barely understand the weight it carries until we live it. Its true meaning unfolds to us ever so slowly the older we get, and as our experience piles. It is good to overcome it before it manifests. Through the strengthening of our faith, practicing kindness and love to self and others.

  1. Beautiful and true, this is a great message. Thank you for sharing this. Doubt manifests into a spiral effect, mostly subconsciously. 🙏🏻

  2. They say that comparison is the thief of joy. This saying rings true in many ways. If you’re experiencing self-doubt because you’re afraid you won’t accomplish something at the same level as someone else, then it can be a paralyzing feeling. Everyone’s journey and ideas of success are different.

    1. Well said. True, we are all in different journeys and at different levels. In comparison we stall our own growth. We should however learn to be in faith and build on self confidence to be able to achieve our goals
