Authenticity is not something we have our we don't have. It's a practice.a conscious choice that we make Every Day. It's about the choice to show up and be Real. The choice to be Honest. The choice to let our True Selves be Seen.
Be a once in a life time partner - male or female. Be love filled, grace filled, joyful, a hard worker who shares in the burdens or carries them awhile your partner is not able. Shower them with kindness.
be real not perfect.I'm real, not perfect. I've trusted unworthy people, but have received blessings from them greater than the pain endured.
It takes some time to accept this. Not only was the narcissist not the person we believed them to be we also were NOT having the love and life we believed we were. And if we allow the charade, we pay a terrible price. To start living from the truth of our souls.
