Hey vibrant souls! How is everyone! Living authentically is such a beautiful thing. A thing I am only just discovering now how important it is.
Being authentic means living your true genuine self and connecting to your own beliefs and values. It’s being mindful and being self-aware of your own weaknesses and strengths.
When overcoming depression, you may find yourself not really living your true self. It might feel like you’re discovering yourself all over again. So how do you live an authentic life?
1. Being mindful
Be mindful of your words and thoughts. Understanding them and being able to let go of the ones that are negative.
2. Discovering your own beliefs
As kids, we were unfortunately told what to believe in. We had no say or understanding on what we were being told to believe in. Discovering what you truly believe in and go forward with it. It could be anything, as long as it makes you happy.
3. Letting yourself feel
When suffering from depression you have a lot of feelings coming in and out. Make sure to go through all the feelings. Allow yourself to feel and then allow yourself to let go.
4. Don’t be scared to try new things
You don’t have to just stick to one thing. When you are transitioning from depression to the healing process make sure to get out there. Try reading, new hobbies, and working out. For me writing on this blog as let me express myself in a more authentic way.
5. Being yourself
And of course just being yourself!! There isn’t just one way to be authentic. Just be you and be happy.
So much love,
