pondering the authenticity buzzword

…genuine, real, bona fide, not fake or counterfeit, reliable, trustworthy, credible…

… being true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character, despite external pressures…

Authentic is Real. Real is, at the end of the day, when you are lying in the dark shadows of your world, being able to sleep with yourself.

Sooooo…..aren’t we “real” and “authentic” all the time?

Are we “unreal”, “fake”, and “inauthentic” when we are being a shit, as opposed to being nice?

When did being authentic mean only what we believe to be most desirable.

For me, I feel like I am being 100% authentic no matter my mood or my actions…no matter how they are perceived by myself or others….
