Authenticity is my mantra for life. That’s why “Authentikei” is what it is.
With that said, I wanted to share a morning reflection: We can be honest without fulfilling the fantasy that are honesty has to win. I think many of us, especially myself, are convinced that we have to prove something, win over someone, or one-up the people in our life to be validated for who we are and that is complete and utter bullshit. When we do this, it’s just a sign of defensiveness and insecurity, and though it’s natural to be insecure, countering that by doing something unnatural just to prove a point is invalidating in itself. Don’t expect others to put you in first place; they want that spot too. The point: Be honest with yourself and you can be honest with others without the competitive filter.
Have a good week. Stay safe.
