It is a battle to be your true self. I know in my own fight for authenticity that turning off all the noise of "should have" and "could have" and "why didn't you" is difficult indeed.
Some people seem to be born with authentic genes and others seem to have no hope of it at all. The truth is we ALL can live authentic lives.
"To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody but yourself-means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight-and never stop fighting." E.E. Cummings
For today, I will offer these words from Brene Brown: "Choosing authenticity means cultivating the courage to be imperfect, to set boundaries, and to allow ourselves to be vulnerable."
Fight on, Real Gurls. It is worth the fight! Freedom awaits.....
