Hello! Please remember that my responses are informational only, we are not establishing a therapeutic relationship.
It takes some practice to learn how to trust your own intuition. Here's some ideas to practice that:
1. Spend quiet time alone and ask yourself open ended questions: "Where would I feel most comfortable living" (referring to your moving situation), "What would I like my life to look like one year, two years, five years from now?" "How would I like a relationship to look like on a day to day basis?" Let the responses come to you and take notice of how you think. You should be relaxed while doing this ---
2. Keep a journal: Just let it be unstructured, free flowing, whatever comes to mind. You want some unconscious thoughts to pop out among your writing. Write down your dreams too and look for themes.
3. Try using the right side of your brain --If you are left brained, this might be more difficult --but it would be doing some things like drawing, painting (try it with your non dominant hand), a craft, dancing, or even cooking. If you feel too awkward drawing, just cut out some pictures from magazines --maybe in response to some of your open-ended questions. See what you notice.
4. Be Patient and Open --We have a tendency to want to "figure it all out," whereas answers usually come in bits and pieces.

Hi ---I am glad my response is helpful to you.
Yes, you got exactly what I was trying to say with after while we see things from another perspective or get new ideas about something that happened or new ideas about how to approach something. I believe that it's how our brains process information, not completely all at once with everything that happens or every decision that we need to make.
Yes --I think that if one lives with a high level of "noise" or "chaos," and constant people interaction that it's very difficult to quiet down and hear what's going on inside. In that situation I think people need to be more deliberate about making space/time to find a spot where you can be alone, quiet down, and think for a bit.
