Hundreds, if not thousands, of books have been written on this subject.
I’ve read many of them. Well, at least some of them.
I’ve found that reading about something doesn’t make me an expert on it.
I still struggle with being authentic.
Words used to define authentic include “genuine, real, true, valid.”
Those words don’t make it easier to be authentic.
It’s easier to hide behind a mask. To pretend. To be fake. To hide.
There’s safety there. At least more safety than being authentic.
No neat conclusions today. I’m still working on this one.
I’m trying. I’m praying.
