The model for many standard romance novels is that the hero and the heroine play their cards close to their chests. Neither really knows what is going on for the other. There are misinterpretations and misunderstandings and then, finally, resolution. This allows a novelist to create a book with lots of pages… but is this how you want to life your life?
How would things be different for you if you were truly authentic? To me, it is much less stressful, for starters! If you’re playing a role – and trying to be who you think the other person wants you to be – eventually it will break down because it’s not sustainable. What do you have but a relationship based on people wearing masks? How can that be fulfilling?
Being truly authentic requires courage. It means showing the world who you really are: what you’re passionate about, what you won’t tolerate, what your views are even on controversial topics. The beauty of being authentic is that people are then able to connect with you on a deep level. Not everyone will “get” you. Not everyone will agree with you, but when you are authentic you attract people who see you and appreciate you even if there are differences.
How is authenticity “sexy”? I believe it’s because a fulfilling sexual connection requires intimacy, and intimacy isn’t possible without authenticity.
I believe that “the truth will set you free” and being authentic allows you to live your truth. I invite you to take the brave step of showing the world your beautiful unique light!
