The Prime Minister has said her faith guides her when making hard decisions.
Theresa May admitted in the interview with the Sunday Times that she can also find it hard doing what she knows is the right thing.
She also revealed that the process of bringing the UK out of the European Union has been giving her sleepless nights.
The PM told the paper: "I suppose there is something in terms of faith, I am a practising member of the Church of England and so forth, that lies behind what I do. It's not like I've decided to do what I'm going to do and I'm stubborn.
"I'll think it through, have a gut instinct, look at the evidence, work through the arguments, because you have to think through the unintended consequences.
"But ultimately, if you've done all that and you believe it's the right thing to do , then you should go and do it — but sometimes it is difficult."
May also said her husband Philip is her personal fashion guru, often picking out her clothes and handbags when they go shopping.
