Learning How To Trust Your Gut

A good question to ask yourself when it comes to trusting your gut is why, during moments of doubt or hesitation, you are convincing yourself that everything is fine.

I am a homebody; there's no denying that. I would much rather spend a night laying on the couch watching a TV show than constantly going out into the depths of Toronto's nightlife.
