I live true to myself.
I listen openly to the ideas of others but decide for myself.
I live my own original life.
Sometimes we fall like blind sheep over the ledge and into the pit of cultural should’s and shouldn’ts, acceptables and unacceptables, such that what others think becomes a genuinely unconscious factor in our decision making. Whether it’s about which music is cool to listen to or which clothes are in style, or something vastly more important like which path to follow or who to love, we must be consciously aware of what influences play into our choices and decisions. Living authentically means living true to one’s own beliefs, opinions and ideas, even if that means being unsupported.
