What is the difference between authenticity and goodness? – Most of us, if not all of us sell our souls to be seen as ‘good’, as ‘special’, ‘significant’, and ‘worthy’. What we don’t realize is that we betray ourselves at each turn. It is only when we are willing to go within and see the ‘triple threat’ and how it takes us away from authenticity- Let’s tackle the elephant in the room.
Ask not whether you are doing it, but to what degree is your authenticity compromised? To what degree are we selling our souls for approval, praise, and validation- The Triple threat?
Forever hungry for validation and significance- Where does this come from? As we were never given that in childhood in plenitude, we will now do anything- for fame, power, money, success- enticing us when we feel empty from inside.
When we trade authenticity for goodness, we will do anything it takes- beg, borrow, steal, lie, forage and create a façade of fakeness.
Ask, how am I being a slave to this image of goodness? How am I betraying myself and selling my soul because I’m a slave to approval, validation, and praise?
We are doing great harm to our children who show us authenticity and we abduct it for ‘goodness’.
We need to own up and grow up if we want to live a daring life and we need to come to terms with our authentic truth- and in turn, allow our children to be authentic and teach them that they are ‘WHOLE’ rather than raise them with ‘HOLES.’
The greatest betrayal – It is US betraying ourselves.
So how to step away from the hunger for goodness and enter your true authentic self?
You liberate and unenslave yourself and in turn your children and all your relationships
