Your authentic self is who you really are deep down. The pare of you that doesn’t care what others think. Authenticity happens when your words, actions and behaviors consistently match your core identity.
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ― Oscar Wilde
Being yourself means living life how you want to live it, regardless of other people’s opinions.
And it means you respect yourself. Don’t worry about what others think. You can’t control them or their thoughts.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
