7 Ways You Know You’re Not Being True to Yourself
Just as living an authentic life supports us in being happier and healthier people, being inauthentic with ourselves and others is an exhausting and frustrating way to live. People pick up on inauthentic behavior easily and quickly. When we’re being inauthentic, we think we’re fooling people, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
7 Surefire Ways You Know You’re Being Inauthentic
1) You hold grudges.
2) You always go with the crowd.
3) You don’t keep your agreements.
4) You don’t take care of yourself.
5) You act like a perfectionist.
6) You say yes all the time.
7) You don’t practice what you preach.
When we are inauthentic, there’s something about us that comes across as untrustworthy. Sometimes it’s obvious and other times, people may not be able to put their finger on it, but there’s something about you that they feel doesn’t add up, creating distance between you and them. Living an authentic life, on the other hand, is far more fulfilling and draws people in, rather than repelling them away from you.
Living authentically, requires you to work on yourself, decide what your truths are and also to have boundaries which can be uncomfortable to implement. I help you to learn how to find your truth and to concretely put new tools and skills into place to live a free and happy life!
