What is the impression you leave with people? Writer Shannon Alder has said, “One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.” Being true to yourself is so important, but it can be hard. How do you find that kind of confidence? What if your true self is at odds with those around you? How can you be authentic in the face of others’ influence?
How do you push against people and other forces that try to turn you into something you’re not? What are the limitations to being yourself? Is there a time and a place to just conform?
Lynn, Tina, and Rachel share their thoughts on this topic in the podcast below. Do you think being yourself is the best reward? Let us know in the comments!
