Authenticity: Psychological Research

  • Self-esteem is a sense that is experienced when our true motives, feelings, values and self-perception are operating without any obstacles. This increases our self-worth.
  • Modern technology, especially intrusive wearable devices is a disruptive change in how we exist in the world, with our authentic self, like our face or biometric information available to others.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

As parents, our children should get unconditional love from us, instead of being tied to excelling in school or sports.

Our lives are uncertain and impermanent, and paradoxically, this can lead us towards living authentically, as we realize that death is unavoidable, values are subjective, and life by itself is flux.

A good life doesn’t mean a lack of problems, but having a diverse range of enriching experiences of all kinds. We realize that a complete, fulfilling life is a process, not an outcome.

A human being’s natural inclination is always authenticity, as seen in every child, who is authentic by default and loves everyone unconditionally. The fault lies in how some kids are raised and how their self-identity and ego starts to develop 18 months after they are born.

Know Yourself + Own Yourself + Be Yourself = The Authentic Life

Authenticity is achieved when we are outside what we are inside. Putting on an inauthentic self (faking authenticity) is tiring and also damaging to our mental health.

Authentic people are vulnerable and constantly enter a state of mutual vulnerability with others, taking it as a source of strength instead of a weakness.

  1. Are you free to make your own choices?
  2. Can you express your own views and opinions without fear?
  3. Can you be yourself on a daily basis?
  4. Are you true towards who you really are?
