Trust Yourself

The other day, I went to my bank to withdraw some cash from the ATM.

Two out of three ATMs bore a notice-“This machine is out of order.” I decided to check if the notice was true.  It wasn’t!

The machine was working perfectly and I withdrew cash.

Trust is a divine quality. But trusting and following something or someone mindlessly aren’t the same.

Many times people will tell you something that’s not true. They do so because they have their own vested interests. They might be misleading you or trying to fool you.

 If you feel that something is wrong, you may be right. Go ahead and check it out for yourself.

Sometimes it’s good to trust no one but yourself.
