Ep062 The fine line between authenticity and your facade

In this episode the boys discuss the impact of always striving and aiming to become your authentic self at all times. But for various reasons, for our own protection, we always create a facade.

Facades are generally there for protection and overtime we “if” we feel comfortable we slowly reveal our authentic selves. But what if you can’t? You’re stuck! You’ve created an alter ego! People love your facade, but you hate it… you’re exhausted! How do you get out? Naturally it’s case by case. But a lot of the time it could be a personality clash, sometimes you yourself could be the problem.

Aiming for authenticity is the gold standard. But sometimes being your authentic self from the get go may have some negative backlash. In general there’s a feeling out process. A great back and forth in true JTW style. Enjoy!!!
