The Struggle Of Authenticity

Leading each day from an authentic place feels as though it should be easy, just the norm as I go about my day. There is no one else like me so why shouldn’t I lead my interactions with others from an authentic place?

This is a question I’ve really had to dive deep into recently, and not one I even realised at the time that I was doing.

I’ve been trying to work out why I’ve felt a disconnect from those I’m closest to, why I’ve felt out of place in my own skin and why my interactions with others haven’t been as deep.

It all boils down to one thing, that I am not being genuine or true to myself or to those I love most in my life.

I’ve been feeling vulnerable and raw as I tackle barriers that are blocking my physical health and emotional relations. And instead of leaning into this I’ve placed another barrier around myself.

Instead of leaning into the vulnerability and sharing this challenge and growth phase with those who inspire me and uplift me, I’ve blocked their support and love.

To be able to grow our relationships and ourselves we need to find a way to allow those we love to see us in our naked truth, even if that is at times raw and vulnerable.

Being open with those in your life when it feels right you’ll see that all they want is to help support and uplift you.

Leading from this place of authenticity you’ll find that your rawness is seen as inspiring and beautiful. You’ll open the door for your loved ones to be vulnerable and open with you.

By leading from an authentic place you’ll attract authentic relationships and encounters into your life.
