Many of us waver between two ends of a spectrum in terms of authenticity. Such movement may be situationally specific or chronic in our personality. Either way the development of ourselves into authentic and real human beings is a life long pursuit.
At one end, there are moments of pure joy discovered when expressing our uniqueness and wholeness. Sounds all waffly but really it is not. When you are comfortable with who you are on the inside, feel real and authentic, you stop worrying what others think and expect. You also boost your self esteem and sense of self. The reward for you is happiness, contentment, fulfilment and comfort in how you choose to live and work. Aspects of living are easier and in flow. Your relationships with others exist with true equality and respect. Your work is enjoyable and in line with your interests and passions. You are true to your self.
