The Importance of Trusting Yourself

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 MyFoodAllergyTeam

"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 MyFoodAllergyTeam

Here are more conversations about trust on MyFoodAllergyTeam:

"I love this place. Honest and open people, and support that you can trust."

"I should not have eaten the salad dressing that came in a little tub in my to go box, looking it up later it said it could have tree nuts! Next time trust my gut instincts and stick to what works for me, instead of taking a chance and paying the price later."

"Now that my son has started nursery school and I'm not around him all the time I need to learn how to let go and trust he will be safe."
