Peel the Onion to Reveal Your True Self
We often pretend. We wear different masks to please others, to belong, to get ahead. And too often our authentic self remains hidden. It happens in the workplace. It happens at social events and it even happens at home. Yet as we know, and research backs it up, people generally are more attracted to authentic people, honest people.
I also believe there are more genuine connections and stronger relationships when we share our true selves. And it is so much easier and comfortable to be “real.” It’s about owning and taking pride in who we are, using our unique gifts and strengths, and sharing our vulnerabilities and foibles. None of us is perfect. Learning to accept who we are as we “peel the onion,” and then be willing to change and learn is what makes us authentic. Stay True…it’s a journey of self-discovery.
