When Inauthenticity Creeps Up On You 12/15/2010
Today during my coaching call I learned that I censor myself around certain people because of some story I made up when I was 12. I do it now, in my 20's so that others won't feel uncomfortable when I show up as myself on an off day, a bad day or even in some cases, I censor myself because people are turned off by my enthusiasm & power.
This is me being inauthentic.
& who wants to be inauthentic anyway? It is exhausting. It takes more energy to adhere to what I think another person wants or expects of me that it does to just be myself. If there are people in my life who can't handle 'the real me' then it is something they need to deal with, not me.
I am taking a stand for my authenticity. I don't really know what it looks like yet. But I do know that I am going to be more self aware of when resistance shows up & tells me to keep my mouth shut or when I feel like I want to hide in my cave because no one will like the angry Megan Monique.
What does it feel like when you are being inauthentic? What do you put in place to shift this way of being?
