8 Ways to Reconnect to Your Authentic Self
“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
At our core we all have an authentic self – the part of us that follows our heart and lives with passion and purpose. But as we get older and take on increasingly complex roles and responsibilities, it can often feel like we are drifting further and further from this true self. From the outside everything may seem perfect, but inside you feel out-of-sync and hear a small voice saying, “This isn’t me.”
The good news is that our true self is always there for us to tap into when we’re ready. With each new day we have the opportunity to live more authentically. It may be hard at first, but by taking small steps you can begin to reconnect with the person you know you are, and let her shine through in everything you do.
