Latin/translation of a latin phrase
I saw this phrase in a picture recently "confide tibi solvum", I am thinking that it is Latin, and I am curious to know what it means.
first of all the correct Latin phrase is “Confide tibi solum” that sometimes is written as “Confide tibi solvm” where the consonant “v” in “solvm” is the ancient way of writing the vowel “u”.
So, such a sentence means:” Rely only on yourself" or “Confide only in yourself”/”Trust only in yourself”.

-CONFIDE (2nd.person singular, imperative of CONFIDO, I rely/confide/trust) = Rely/confide/trust
-TIBI (dative singular, 2nd.person singular pronoun)= on yourself/ in yourself
-SOLUM/SOLVM (adverb) = only
