In L’ARTISTE Mag, we’ve talked a lot about how to find and embrace your authentic self but what about

How to keep your authentic self?

Everyone knows that we live in a world where people are trying to push you this way or that way.

There will always be people trying to tell you that you’re not supposed to be like that or do that.

There will always be people trying to tell you how to do it right or how to be right.

But here’s the thing, it’ll never be right unless it sits right with you.

If you feel like people are trying to push you in ways that don’t resonate with your authentic self, simply walk away.

But before you do that, we know that it can be tempting to listen to them and walk the path that they want you to walk.

That is why we think that it is very important that you check in with yourself and practice a little bit of self-care away from other people’s opinion and judgement.

To help you out with your self-care process, here are some questions that we think you should ask yourself:

  • Is what I’m doing bringing me closer to my authentic self?
  • Am I being my authentic self?
  • Is this person pushing me to be my authentic self or are they pushing me to be who they want me to be?
  • Do I like the person that I am becoming and does that person aligns with my authentic self?

We suggest that you really ask yourself those questions and that you actually reply to yourself.

We know how crazy talking to yourself may sound but to be honest, if you don’t talk to yourself, you are more likely to lose yourself (again!).

And we don’t want that!

So in order to be your authentic self and stay your authentic self, we really recommend that you keep on touching base with yourself from time to time.

It’s time that we all start having a healthy relationship with ourself!

Too often you’ll see people being their own enemy.

Bringing themselves down.

Hating on themselves.

Giving up on themselves.

Not believing in themselves.

Let’s not do that anymore!

Become your own best friend!

Talk to yourself.

Make sure you are ok.

And if you’re not, it’s ok!

Just talk to yourself and to God and let those conversations bring you back to your authentic self.

There will always be tough times.

There will always be times where you feel like you are losing yourself.

You cannot avoid those times.

They will come.

We don’t want you to hide from those moments and avoid them.

On the contrary, we want you to be ready to face them.

We want you to be ready to do whatever it takes to come back to your authentic self.

And in order to do that, you have to constantly keep in touch with who you truly are and who God created you to be.

God didn’t create you to be someone that only follows what other people tell them to do.

God didn’t create you to give up.

God didn’t create you to hate yourself.

God didn’t create you to be insignificant.

God created you to be great!

God created you to be a masterpiece.

God created you authentically.

So make sure that you take care of that authentic self of yours!
