Being “real” or “authentic” in life carries its own risks. Some will criticize you for being too positive or too negative, often at the same time. Your honest joy and sorrow will draw comments from well-meaning people who seek to fix you one way or another.
You will soon realize that these critics live their lives behind a mask of self-deception, and they fear anyone who is real.
Still, it will be worth it because you will be truly you.
