Are we as individuals being and expressing our true selves? How do we keep it real and what blocks us from doing so?
I believe that authenticity is absolutely necessary for a fulfilled existence!
Here’s a few quick points (all of which I could easily expand on but this is just a reference point to start the conversation):
What is authenticity made up of?
- Self worth
- Ability to accept and tolerate rejection
What blocks authenticity?
- Lack of sense of self
- Messages – cultural and familial
- Fear of rejection/need for acceptance
Think about your authentic self – when, where and with whom do you feel most comfortable being yourself? What situations or people dampen your ability to be your true, full self?
