It really is becoming increasingly difficult to hide my true self from the world. It seems like being authentic has become part of my values and it just makes me feel uncomfortable when I don’t believe that I can be myself in a certain situation or circumstance. Needing to watch out what I say and how I behave…Thinking about how this or that may be perceived…It requires a lot of effort and constant attention and I am not sure how much longer I am willing to live this way. It seems like once I have made a step into the direction of my true self, I am no longer able to step back and close that door again.
And actually, that is a very good thing.
