What does the word mean to you? What makes it so hard for you to be yourself, to be seen, to be open and express yourself your way?
Authenticity is the result of what is to come after we flounder around the beginning of our twenties.

Authenticity is your imperfectly tailored being wrapped into everything that is you.
There are many factors into why it’s taken me a bit to unveil my true self , but I think the biggest factor is the people you surround yourself with. So many people have their own ideas of how you should act, what you should be wearing, where your interests should lie. It takes a while to figure out who is truly receptive to who you are and who you’re becoming. Once you truly like you, the rest will fall into place.
