Authenticity: genuineness; realism; legitimacy; truthfulness. This seems to be a difficult concept to inculcate, in a world where we are constantly urged to be like something or someone. And then we also are told an inverse of the same; live for yourself, be you, don’t care what people think of you. Makes it quite confusing huh; should you be like someone else, or should I be myself?
We all get to that point in our lives where we are forced to deeply look at what matters to us, and looking at what matters, calls for an introspection of who we are. It may happen once, or several times in your life. In fact, the more times it happens the better, because it shows that you are evolving and not remaining stagnant.
