Being committed to being authentic may be challenging especially for those who have not seen or know what that even looks like. Often people are so focused on being one way at work to keep the boss happy, another way to keep their mother happy, and another way to keep their significant other happy. My question is, “Who are they, or what are they like when they are alone”? Are they the same or different? Did they lose their original copy, their authentic self? This is another part of the identity series. We are very complex creations and have many aspects of our lives that will be reflected differently depending on the light and the atmosphere that we are standing in. Whatever the circumstances we find ourselves in, or who we are with, it is important to be genuine. To protect our true identity by being committed and authentic is a life long quest and one of the best ways to keep our joy.
