You have more wisdom than you realize. When addressing a life question or wrestling with what feels like a deficiency in yourself, ask yourself: what would you say to yourself if you were your dearest friend? What would you say to yourself if you were your beloved child? Follow that advice. Maybe write it out. Although we may feel confused or tentative, we are created by Wisdom and therefore made to recognize Wisdom's voice.
