How we become more authentic or true to ourselves IS by becoming aware of our existence. Not just the existence that inhabits waking up, washing, working, going to the gym, preparing food, having sex, etc. Existence is the awareness that we have a choice because we have consciousness and it gifts us the potential to tap into our authenticity.
The existential psychologist Rollo May writes, “Man (people) is the particular being who has to be aware of himself, be responsible for himself, if he is to become himself” (May, R.).
What choices are you making now that will have consequences you may not like in the future? What fears are you not facing that are keeping you from being truly free? What are you denying about yourself in order to move forward in a more positive deliberate way?
We all want to be true to ourselves. We all desire to live authentically. We are so fortunate to live in the western world where we indeed have choices… and that in itself is, freedom!
