Join us Thursday, April 28th at 7:00PM for the next conversation in our series where we will explore the idea of being your authentic self.
“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” - Carl Jung
“Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we are supposed to be and embracing who we actually are.” - Brene Brown
Authenticity has been defined as having a keen awareness of who you are and what you stand for, and expressing yourself honestly and consistently to the world.
Living a life of authenticity is a constant effort and this can mean sacrifice. Not everyone in our lives will respond well to our authentic selves because of how it may impact them. When we are being authentic, we are being vulnerable; we are showing all parts of us, the good with the bad.
Being your true authentic self means that what you say in life aligns with what your actions. This means, you are being your true self through your thoughts, words, and actions. It goes beyond what your job title is, what possessions you own, or a role you play for someone (e.g. sister, best friend, wife).
When we are authentic, we stay true to ourselves, and who we genuinely are.
We are present in the here and now. We can clearly define and maintain boundaries. We do what makes us happy, we follow our passions regardless of who we disappoint, or how it may be perceived by others. We have the opportunity for others to love us and accept us for who we are at our core. When we do this, we allow for more intimate and honest relationships, and we allow for true acceptance and unconditional love.
