Choosing Authenticity

I’m just going to leave this here:

What they don’t tell you about being yourself is that it is hard. 

You think it’s going to be all freedom and relief.

In reality it’s hard work. 

The decision of every moment to be authentic and original. 

It’s easier to blend into the monotony of everybody else. 

Choose the work.

Even if you are an exposed nerve, better that than letting yourself die inside. 

From me to you,

-Emily Jacobsen
