One of my favorite quotes is by author Marianne Williamson: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
How can you have a healthy, honest, transparent, happy, authentic relationship with the world if you are not true to yourself? To be authentic means to be genuine and real—not counterfeit. Living an authentic life is necessary because it gives us the freedom from always trying to be someone or something we are not.
