Sometimes we have a need to examine ourselves positively, and wonder are we making progress in developing our true Authentic self?
First off, what does that mean, to be My Authentic Self? Am I not who I am, or is there an underlining question as to who I truly am?
Being of a Christian mind, one can believe without full understanding, because we have the Life of Christ to show and teach us about how to become true to our beliefs
However, because we are an authentic person, unique and individual, we can be swayed by cultural values and behave according to who we are expected to be, rather than who we truly are.
This has a much to do with our own weakness in wanting to belong and fit in, as well as the opinions of others, so what steps can we take to develop this authentic self?
I believe the answer lies in honesty and a certain humility where we are prompted by our inner voice to be true to ourselves, no matter what!
We have a Mentor / a Template given to us in the Life of Christ, to teach us how to become our Authentic Self. So, a very positive and inspiring question to ask is this, am I interested in becoming this wonderful caring and loving person, created by God?
