A guest post at Positive Provocations.

A quick note before we get to authenticity. If you’re stressed out, you owe it to yourself to check out the Living with Ease course offered by Sandra Pawula. The course promises to teach you practical stress-relieving techniques and help you identify your stress triggers. Lessons start on September 9th.

Now, authenticity.

Do you live your life for yourself or for others?

Are you more bothered about what your husband, your parents, your in-laws or your grandparents want rather than what you want? Are you overly-conscious about what your neighbors say about you?

Spend too much time caring about what others want you to do?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be living your life for others. You may have been conditioned to to conform to social expectations and family demands.

But what if you’ve had enough? Had enough of living for other people?

To start living a more authentic authentic life, stop caring so much about these 10 factors.

  1. This one is spot-on awesome! Thanks so much for sharing this. I constantly need these very reminders whenever I find myself taking fear-based decisions 😀 😀

    1. Glad you liked it Sheeba – we all need reminders like this so we live from a place of love and truth, and not fear.

    1. Hi Zeenat – thank you for your visit and opportunity again to share with your audience.

      I’ve had the most positive experience with the post and grateful for your continued inspiration. Thank you.

  2. It can be easy to fall into the trap of caring too much about what other people think. Societal expectations can carry a seriously heavy weight. But if we continue to hold that weight on our shoulders, we can never rise up.

    Thanks to both Vishnu and Zeenat for this friendly authenticity reminder 🙂

    1. You got it Kevin. Thank you for you comment and living an authentic life yourself:)

      Not only will we live a less than authentic life, more than likely we will will a copy-cat life if we go with what society demands of us.

  3. I enjoyed your article at Zeenat’s blog, as well as your other recent articles. It was fun catching up on your blog after my break this summer. Looking forward to reconnecting.

    1. Thanks for your visit, Galen! It was like summer vacation without you around here in the blogosphere and I’m so glad to see you back.

  4. Good post! I struggled for years worrying what others thought, hoping to please them. It’s no way to live, nor can you fulfill your purpose. Thanks for this!

    1. Thanks Dave! We can do it for a bit but it gets old quick. Thanks again Dave and looking forward to keeping up with your blog.
