There is typically a difference between the “you” you actually are, and the “you” you become when the expectations of other people are present.
For this week’s #MondayMotivation
, I wanted to bring to light an important point: that if your friends, family, colleagues, and clients are expecting the “most authentic version” of yourself, you’re violating your moral and ethical commitment to those same people by shifting who you are in order to match their preconceived expectations.
This week, I want to give you permission to start living BOLDLY in the authenticity of who you ACTUALLY are. This week, I encourage you to embrace those personality traits you’ve been suppressing.
I encourage you to shift how you operate to begin to fill your life, instead of drain your life.
Filling starts with embracing the ways you rejuvenate and recharge. I know people who are always in the limelight, but actually gain energy from retreating and relaxing alone or with a select close group of friends…
In contrast, I know those who have been told their entire life they’re “quiet” and “introspective,” and therefore work and live in a way that’s quiet, instead of using their gifts to impact the world around them.
You know that feeling you get when you begin to compromise who you are for another person? Let’s build a stronger narrative away from that compromise.
Put frankly, if someone else needs you to shift who you are authentically in order to better your interaction with them, they’re likely not someone you should be spending your time with 🤷♂️
