Be Authentic: Why it’s Important to Be Yourself in 2018?










Why is it important to remain Authentic? Well for one it’s easier to be you then it is pretending to be someone else. When you are trying to be something you aren’t you are only hurting yourself in the long run. In my opinion, being authentic means you are straying away from what the mass is doing and creating your own wave. Advertising, mass-media, Hollywood and the big corporations which control these things are persistently attaching us with Unrealistic, unattainable, and unhealthy ideals of what it means to be normal and successful.

 


So what’s the Problem?

Well, one of the major problems is that these ideals don’t just affect our spending habits, they affect our attitudes, social interactions, and our perceptions of ‘who we are’ and ‘where we should be’ in life.

The Pressure to be someone other than ourselves…

You’ve heard say this over and over again, how important it is to stay true to yourself. Well look at it this way. On a planet with over 7 billion people and a job market that doesn’t give a damn about your college diploma, what’s going to make you stand out and above the rest of the world? Authenticity! Of course it’s not all that matters, but it’s a big part. I mean why wouldn’t you want to be you? Being yourself comes with the added benefit of feeling really good about yourself. Hi Integrity!

It’s much Easier being Yourself

When we don’t have to worry about thinking about how we are acting, what we are wearing, or what others think, we find life is a lot easier. Life is meant to be enjoyed, experienced and not difficult. When I was younger I found it so hard relating to my peers because everyone followed each other, walked in the same lines, and aspired the same dreams. I always found myself alone because I didn’t think that way, and that’s okay. Being authentic sometimes requires you to be raw, real, and unapologetic. Make sure that you are living your best life for you and not for other people.
