“What it means to be authentic:
- to be more concerned with truth than opinions
- to be sincere and not pretend
- to be free from hypocrisy: “walk your talk”
- to know who you are and to be that person
- to not fear others seeing your vulnerabilities
- being confident to walk away from situations where you can’t be yourself
- being awake to your own feelings
- being free from others’ opinions of you
- accepting and loving yourself”
