Are you being authentic?

Posted on 16/01/2013 What does it mean to be authentic? To authenticate something means making it genuine, or the real deal. Are you being authentic? To be authentic means to be real; to be true to you. So, are you portraying the real deal of who you are?
 

It can be a challenge to be authentic because we fear that if people see the real you they may not even like you. Why should you care if people like you? Do you like you? If you like yourself, your true self, thats all that counts isnt it? If you do not like your true self, then what is it about yourself that you do not like? Is it something that you can change, for example a flaw in your character; something that you can develop? If so then that isnt so much of a problem, is it? You can change it. If it is something that you cannot change, for example, your height, your build then learn to accept it and love it. Learn to accept yourself with all your warts; as you are right now. That does not mean you cannot work on making positive changes in your life, but focus on loving you for who you are now.

 

If people do not like you, dont worry, theyll hate you more when you become brilliant, or the person you were born to be. It is none of your business if others dont like you, because by focussing on what others think of you is what holds you back from being real. There will be many others that will like you for who you really are.

 

Did you know that many people out there can spot a fake person? For some people it is quite easy to do so, just as easy as spotting a fake Louis Vuitton bag, probably even easier. Is that what you want? Surely you would prefer people to see the real you and know that you are being genuine. Whats the worst thing that can happen by being authentic? Do not be afraid to let your true self shine through. Take off the mask and reveal your inner beauty, your inner soul, your greatness. Life then becomes less of a struggle. Let me know what aspects of yourself you love.
