Being authentic has different meanings for everyone. Being yourself is about being the person you have the idea to be in this world. Expressing your true feelings and opinions with respect and compassion towards others. What does it take to follow your own path and not compare yourself to others constantly? The way that we express ourselves externally is a direct reflection of what is going on in the inside. Some ways to tap into your authenticity are increasing your self awareness; being vulnerable- we are all perfectly imperfect; be present… completely and see the reflections from others as a gift or an opportunity to make changes.
