Forget Authenticity, Just be Real

The trend to be ‘authentic’ has lead to us wearing more masks than ever before.
Getting uncomfortable with your own reality is hard. It is easy to run head first in the other direction.
We spend a lot of time running away from ourselves.
It may seem better to strive to be ‘your authentic self’ – to try and fix yourself. Or it may seem like you should to follow the trend of magical indoctrinations to teach you how to connect to your ‘highest self’.
It may seem too scary to accept who you are and where you are. The worry, the weird, the chaos.
There is no better, truer or higher self than the self you have today.
It is a relief when you realise that you don’t have to better your mess.
It is a relief to know that every day you can just be where you are and who you are.
It is ok to allow your self to be unravelled and revealed one day at a time.
You don’t need a certificate to be yourself – you can just be real.
We need more real.
