The thing about authenticity

The thing about honesty, and therefore authenticity is that it’s two-fold: yes, it’s about being honest with others about yourself; but it’s also about, and completely dependent upon your honesty with yourself. Self-honesty and authenticity of self is always a work in progress, but it’s work, and if you’re not constantly working on it, your authenticity with others is not very honest at all. 
It’s about being vulnerable enough to know that you need to do the work, and being vulnerable enough to do the work.
