Everyone likes the real deal. We don’t want fake. We don’t want dishonest. We want the truth. But, no matter how much we believe we need it, the truth is, we’re not so great at it. We lie to ourselves, hide our flaws, and put on that fake smile even when we’re at our lowest. We think you’d agree, living this way is not serving any of us well. It’s not good on the inside and it’s an absolute deal-breaker for relationships. If we can’t be truthful with one another, how can we grow, thrive, or be true to ourselves? So, it’s more than time we LIVE AUTHENTICALLY. Our world is in dire need of genuine. We need to mean what we say and say what we mean. We need to take ownership of our actions and stop pointing fingers. And, we need honesty if we’re going to make things better together. No more highlight reels on social media. No more veneer. Let’s step out from the shadows with all our imperfections. And then let’s give each other some breathing room to just be ourselves. Doesn’t that sound better already? Be your true-you, because you matter. You are awesome. Don’t worry, no one will judge. And, if they do, then, tell them to get real with themselves. Being authentic matters.
