Day Three- How does Authenticity affect my relationships? 

Part of this question was “How does other people’s opinion affect me?” That’s an easy answer. It doesn’t. The only opinion that matters to me is mine. Period. What I think of me is the only thing that matters. 

Yes people have their opinions of me and that’s fine but it does not influence how I live my life, what I think, or what I do. 

Now that doesn’t mean that I don’t have insecurities. I do. I have several. But those are demons I struggle with within myself and are not influenced by the opinions of others. That may seem odd to you reading this but it’s true. Allow me to explain. I am the hardest person on me. Always have been. Always will be. 

That being said, I don’t care what others opinions are of me. If you like me, cool. If you love me, great. If you don’t like me, I’m ok with that. 

Considering all of that, I would have to say that at times my authenticity may hinder some of my relationships. Because I don’t care what people think I speak my truth and that’s not always a popular opinion depending on who the audience is. I’m ok with that too. While I never intend to hurt another’s feelings with my truth and will always try to use kind words there have been times when other’s are offended by my truth. Do I care? Sometimes. But never enough to change my truth. 

I am who I am. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I’m ok with who I am and what my truth is at any given moment.
