It takes real Courage to be Authentic.

SOO FEW Dare to be different... to be disobedient, to speak the unpopular truth. Fewer still would Oppose their peers, family and even logic in pursuit of their dreams. Be the Lion! A a rare warrior, determined to Follow the Heart BEFORE ALL ELSE. 🖤👣

“Your need for acceptance can make you invisible in this world. Don’t let anything stand in the way of the light that shines through this form. Risk being seen in all of your glory.” – Jim Carrey

“So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach so we never dare to ask the universe for it. I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it.” – Jim Carrey

—So when all trails end, DARE to Blaze your own path. Find strength in the warrior spirit, & stand in Truth. most importantly, HAVE FAITH IN YOURSELF ABOVE ALL ELSE. ~~ ~~

99% Live a lie.. following the herd, conforming to the norms, identified by labels, polarized into groups, and thinking how they were taught to think. — Ultimately losing themselves to conformity, labels, and SHAPED by WHAT THEY want you to be... Go All in! 🖕

I WILL Be the #AUTHENTIC me, and I will do it different. I will dream big, craft my vision, and Blaze the trail no one else would dare travel. Think I'm off my rocker? Throwing away my life for a crooked fantasy? ? Just more fuel to my flame.

...

The struggle will be real. Often times demoralizing and obscure. But this hardship of finding your way through the thick of things, is what brings forth your uniqueness and greatness. Although you may long for the security and comfort that comes from sticking with the masses - think broader... The only way to self actualization and fulfillment is through self discovery & mastery in pursuit of your passion. Your inner turmoil and darkness that surrounds will eventually give birth to a dancing star. 🌟

Very true. Most of us are scared of being authentic because we don't want to be alone. If you want to do what everyone is doing, you'll get lost in the crowd. Being yourself is the easiest way to get noticed and recognized, but fear of what the crowd will say won't make us do that.
