Being Authentic

I’m working on being “authentic”. What does that even mean? I want to live my life and not the life the people around me think is mine. I want to be a genuine friend. Am I being genuine if I go along to get along? Obviously not everyone is going to agree with me all the time, nor I with them. I think being able to be honest and sincere with how I feel and what is going on in my life is the mark of real friendship.

I struggle because I do have people I enjoy being around sometimes, just not all the time. Why do I feel the need to accommodate someone else’s idea of what my friendship looks like? I’m pondering today…I’ll get back with you.
